Quell the rage, and be kind…
The world is filled with anger,
venting souls of actions
far from consciousness,
reacting from as plethora of obstacles
that tease life to limits,
and so the vile hatred and displeasure
finds flow in anger’s release.
Rage is the last straw,
the point of no return,
when expression rules a mind in surrender,
and the blind actions can cause much pain,
the ramifications of which can change lives,
consequence a seeming imbalance
to anger’s will.
Each day frustration and confusion
help anger to rise,
on the roads, in shops and on the street,
people venting with rage, indiscreet,
causing circumstances unwanted,
with results that may persevere
far beyond expectations.
Are these vile outbursts worth the consequence,
when three deep breathes
and a little kindness can attest,
a far less complex outcome,
and problems overcome with just compassion
for the dark days we all at times have,
to quell the anger with a smile of understanding.
