Favorite Quote:
one of the greatest tragedies of our time is this impression that has been created that science and religion have to be at war.
-Francis Collins

I may never let go of my anger and wrath,
But I will always have the last laugh.
-Corey Taylor

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I fought against you

In one moment, I forgot everything I was taught

Now, every day, I suffer too

I suffer for the pain that I brought


I never wanted to bring harm 

But I ignored the voice telling me to yield

On that fateful day, the seal was torn

My anger that was bottled up, had been revealed


I lashed out in blind rage

Never before, had I been in such a haze

The animal that I had kept inside my self like a cage

Broke free, and it was in its final phase


When I awoke from this enraged havoc

I had done more damage than I could realise

My sister was crying in pain, cause I punched her in the stomach

In that moment I realised, it was to late to apologize.

The author's comments:

This poem talks about how my anger issuses got the better of me for the first time 5 years ago. From that point, it would take me 3 years to retake at least some control of my anger, and 5+ years to rebuild my relationships with my family and friends.
