Why Can't I Feel Anger


They say don't show anger
When they pour out all their lies
To the Judge speak slow and clearly
And look into his eyes

Don't say bad things about the mother
Even if it is all true
Concentrate on your Daughter
And protecting all her youth

These words seem true and simple
For the ones who follow rules
But I've drawn swords with the devil
Who'll use a child as her tool

Why can't I feel anger
While my child drowns in the rain
When all the court will offer
Is a childhood of pain

Why can't I feel anger
When I'm drying all her tears

Why can't I feel anger
When our futures full of fear

    Down with the lairs! we should protect our rights in front of these people, but being cool is more important than anything in this world. stay cool and then take your rights back from those who are just trying to eat our rights. never ever give up in front of them an don't show any weakness, because when you get angry, they will use it such a big weakness! I hope that you take the rights back. i believe you dear Jon! nice work and fragrant writing here! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
