Uncontrolled Anger

With deep sorrow I bow my head in shame now
Unable to hold the raging anger in
Again I blew, not remembering the vow
The trigger was pushed. The patience became thin
The shouting roar rang out like a tidal wave
Once unleashed no one could gain the strength to win
To face such wrath, one must be steadfast and brave
Why, when it begins it becomes everything
When calm I know this is no way to behave
From where does this vile hatred grow and spring
Sadly, no one should have to face this alone
The words hurt with intention to harshly sting
To end this madness it is mine to avow
With deep sorrow I bow my head in shame now
