Example:My Inner Anger
My eyesight becomes cloudy when I look,
My hands are shaky and dangerous as a hook.
I tremble in frustration and sweat starts to boil,
I most release this burden and my body from this toil.
Can feel my heart pounding inside my chest,
Can control this feeling,but will do my best.
With all that I am, I must stop this anger,
With nothing to lose I have friends to consider.
An end is in sight, I can feel the release,
I beg you for the forgiveness please.
