'I walked with hurt and anger'
In my life so far, I have suffered pain,
been overcome with emotions of anger, hurt;
silent, I never did complain,
I just became an introvert;
I was detached and flat.
Then, one day I became a wildcat,
I was so tired of being a doormat !
I became full of fury and wrath, and rage,
a warrior fierce and in war I did engage;
until in deep anguish- I was in a locked cage.
An emotional cage of hurt and anger,
my spirit shattered- my heart aching;
I went still and took a breather,
the path I was on- crumbling;
then, revenge inside me faded,
I did not want to be the thing I hated
so all the hurt and anger I halted.
The effects of careless words last a lifetime,
but instead of fighting back, I take downtime;
and since I let go- I dwell in the sublime.
