When you find yourself in a rage a side of you comes out that no one, even you, recognizes. This poem was written after an episode where my feelings got the better of me and I hurt a very dear friend.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life

Poison
Words that need to be spoken should not accumulate inside.
The hurt, pain or jealousy a person feels can not hide.

Sorrow and anger can be and will be suppressed.
But this only leads to a person feeling depressed.

Anger is a deadly toxin in which the body it flows.
When it takes over limb by limb, everyone knows.

The body - The mind controls and manipulates.
As the poison enters the veins and circulates.

When the poison reaches the heart it's too late.
Disastrous emotions take over such as revenge and hate.

The antidote to cure these emotions, is not so hard to find.
We must search to learn to control our spirited bodies and minds.

    this is so true i totally understand what this poem is like. I mean day by day you see teens today fighting with each other about nothing, and they dont exactly care on who is, or how much the words they say can totally, effect one another. Then they regret on how they had done it, but its too late.they already lost a part of their friendship.

    This is a great poem, coming from a place of fear, pain and abuse. It really hits home. It makes you think twice about life, and where you let it take you. Thanks

    Anger is poison and it doen destroy and sometimes, sadly, it is when its too late to control. I have a short temper and to hear this poem helps me relize how truly damaging anger can be unless controlled.
