Anger, is nasty,anger is harsh and  mean

Anger is aggressive and it always causes a scene.

Anger is childish  demanding  everyone’s attention

Anger, kicking out and punching, smashing all convention.


Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.


Anger is ever present spoiling everything it touches

Anger a vicious bitch  kicking away your crutches.

Anger  is a cancer chewing at your bowl

Anger never flinches however much you howl.


Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.


Anger is malicious back stabbing and snide

Anger can rip you apart and toss you to one side.

Anger will suck your blood and gnaw on your bones

Anger will drain you of life and dump lost and alone.


Anger is ever present stripping the good away

Never giving in,chipping away at you night and day

Growing and gathering momentum  consuming you from within

Ever whispering viscous poison in your ear whilst fixing you with a grin

Recoiling at the slightest sign of kindness Anger, Anger is a bloody sin!

Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and hopefully in to light ?? I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well. I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

      1. I’m good Young Lady.
        Keep dipping in and out of your muses, some of them remind me as this one of your troubles. Not as though you dont have enough on your plate the OM can still work his magic. LOVE YOU. Little Bastion………………….spell checker said its OK !

  2. Brilliant.
    I could identify with every word.
    Not because I am an angry person, but because I easily could be due to my pain.
    I fight anger every second of every day.

    Brilliant Willow x

      1. I pray…
        I am tired…
        Thank you for the encouragement..
        I only wish I could return it.. 😦

        Thank you xx

      2. I know, I know..
        I try..
        One step, One breath at a time..
        You know..
        It grinds us…

        Thank you..Really


      3. I know..And I won’t.

        Try and remain focused and positive. The things I do to keep my brain busy is unreal 🙂

        Thanks again..
        Your a Star x

      4. You take time to help and inspire..
        In my books you are..

        And I will cope..
        I have to..


  3. Perfectly said. You addressed every point about anger and its destruction perfectly. I like this; I could identify with it; and you’ve shown me that I’ve left a lot of anger behind.

  4. My dear friend, I have nominated you for The Wonderful Team Member Award! Congratulations! Please visit this

  5. anger is something that loves to take control, Sweet Willow, I felt every word of your poem… Spot on my friend, … anger is relentless and needs to be beaten.. (with a big stick!!) Hugs aplenty.. xPenx

  6. Don’t punish yourself for falling in these traps but, if there’s anything that could serve you is, beware of losing your heart and peace over anything or anyone who’s bent to control you. I’m sorry and cherish you dear.

  7. I Believe sometimes a person has to let their anger out, which is a healthy thing. You just need to be around people who you love, so they understand.

  8. Excellent, Willow. Anger is destructive & a big flare up which hides real issues. Really well written (& love the pic).
