A beautiful poem about anger

Sometimes

By: Elaine B

 

Sometimes I get angry when I think about how I have been unkind to others

And how others have unkind to me

Sometimes I get angry because when I had the chance to tell you all that you meant I never let you know

Sometimes I get angry when I read about our history

 

Sometimes I get angry when I know that the air that we breathe is polluted

Sometimes I get angry when I see so much death, war, and misery

 

Sometimes I get angry that we have to eat unhealthy foods

Sometimes I get angry that we have to drink from a dirty water source

 

I get angry that some people don’t appreciate each other

And the trees

the flowers, rain, snow, the sunshine, the moon, the stars, the air that we breathe, and all of the living things

in this world that we have been given

 

And sometimes I get angry at being so angry, I wish that I could take this anger and turn it into peace

Because I get angry that my anger sometimes consumes me
