No Reason, No Rhyme…Blind Rage

No Reason, No Rhyme...Blind Rage
No Reason, No Rhyme…Blind Rage

What rage sits within a mind,
unknown and ill-prepared when red rises,
and can an emotional mind
calm an enraged passion in expression,
when all reason leaves the building,
and regret but a shadow of light
not yet reached.

How easily actions turn to harm,
when red tinges even the most calm resolves,
to enact the vile outpourings of futile violence,
in a moment of insentient wrath,
evil the depths of times passed,
when survival drove murder and mayhem
to task.

Some have a switch, a last resort reason,
that placates violence to a knowing yield,
others, in blind and vengeful passion seek no aftermath,
just the silence of what drives their anger,
the end to a sufferance no longer taken,
and in rage blows of retaliation,
indignation’s stance.

And then in the wake of hostility,
a body stilled, beaten and bloodied,
does reason return, in shock of truth,
and in regret does a mind know its crime,
what ensued,
in the red hues of furious action,
the path of disaster, a remedy unsanctioned.

Sorrow melds with shock,
as a mind returns to rock the soul,
the realisation of hot and violent choice,
a transformation for lives,
endings just beginnings for one,
as reality paints a stark truth,
too late in time, no reason no rhyme.

    Unchecked anger can lead to so much damage and sorrow. Very well penned verse on hostility and rage, Tony.
