Ashes

Written by: Ashley Smith

Anger lives inside of you
REsiding in your heart
Bitterness controls your actions
lonliness consumes you whole
chips on each shoulder
using wrath to justify the past
How long can that really last?

using anger to show other emotions
smothering any joy you have
affecting those around you
trying to use means to justify
but who really gains anything?

Your heart is crushed by the weight of vengeful thoughts
and your fire consumes all you encounter
leaving joy in a pile of ashes of what once was
and what now can never be
