Newfound Anger

It is all new

and disturbing-

there is a raging fire

inside my head,

and it feels as if

the quiet electricity

has joined forces

with a thunderstorm

that has somehow arrived

at the predicted time.

This feeling has a name,

they say, but I

do not want to call

it that, it feels

so much more than that,

and I am shaking;

terrified of being

at the mercy of it,

scared that it might

never leave my head.

How can life work

for someone

perpetually vexed,

when the entire world

is a trigger, and you

are already full

to the brim?

How can the world

be kind to

a furious woman

after driving her

to the brink?


“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.”
Maya Angelou
