March 09, 2010 - Holding Anger

Holding Anger

It often makes me angry
When life doesn't turn out like I think it should
And I feel so much resentment
This doesn't do me any good

It pains me when I don't get to do the things
That I wanted to
Because something else was put in my path
That I was led to do

It is hard to just move on and get over it
And know that this too will end
Not let it turn into so much bitterness
And all my emotions offend

It would be so easy to just be angry at the world
I could probably justify it in many ways
But I see that holding anger in my heart
Will only take all the love and light
In this life of mine away

It is hard to understand why we are led from a path we feel we should be on sometimes and anger is only natural ... a thought provoking and well expressed poem.

Yes, it's frustrating and confusing. Anger is natural, it's what we do with our anger that is important - and you are so right: when we hold on to it, we only hurt ourselves. Great poem, thanks!
