I feel angry
I feel so angry
I want to scream
I want to break
I want to punch a wall
until my knuckles bleed
or the wall breaks.

I feel angry
when I loose control,
when someone takes away
my ability to protect myself
my liberty
when someone enters my space
without my permission
I feel like my body
won’t be able to sustain
another assault
and its anger that flows in my veins.

Feeling angry is exhausting
its blinding and draining
so I decided
Angry died
what arose from the ashes
was a warrior
fortified with a generation of suffering
strengthened by a generation of hope
solidified by compassion
embodied in a human.
