Thank You Good people

I find myself irritated
Almost everyday
I wish people would leave me alone
And finally just get out of my way

This pressure is building up in me
I fear it’s going to burst
I try to release these feelings
That way no one will get hurt

But every time I relax
Seems someone new is on my back
This train is on a certain course
And it’s beginning to come off the tracks

So I submit all of these poems
In hopes that it will help
But this rage is too controlling
It’s a feeling that I’ve never felt

For I will forever fight longer
And try and remain calm
But if this pressure gets stronger
Then it will surely go off like a bomb

For when this bomb goes off
I hope and pray no one’s around
Especially the people I love
If so a new person will be found

A person full of rage and disappointment 
A person who is no longer loved
Someone who was once looked up too
Had admirers but now has none

So I will try and diffuse this bomb
My bomb of rage and misery
With my thoughts and kind words
I believe you call this poetry

But I give my thanks
To all the great poets
On Poetry Soup.com
You deserve it and you know it

For lending me your eyes and ears
And especially all of your hearts
I thank you all for listening
And for that this bomb won’t blow apart
