Anger- Friend or Foe?

Anger- Friend or Foe?

familiar and safe like a brother
yet destructive and unforgiving
no one wants to be near it
suppressed it boils until the explosion
deceiving power only
seen by the ridiculous defensiveness
she defends herself bluntly
deep guilt arrises
she punishes herself in a hundred unconscious ways
what to do?
is it her own or was it passed down as normal?
is it someone else’s?
confusion and then again it arises
in her family
in her partner
in her thoughts
she has fiercely processed it to the ground
yet understanding it does not make it disappear
is it real?
is it a distraction from creativity?
she laughs
she chooses peace again and again
