sometimes anger turns to fuel in liquid fire veins

Recommended Posts

sometimes i am angry

sometimes i am angry because the world

is too big and not big enough

is

uncaring, unyielding

sometimes i am screaming to the sky

but i am unheard

sometimes i am crying into the silence

of mobile people, empty hallways, broken gazes

 

sometimes i am cheering

fist raised and eyes wide

peace sign brandished with more power than any weapon could hope to yield

sometimes i am smiling

at my siblings on that stage

doing what i cannot

at the crowd that watches

at the signs held high

sometimes my heart is one

with the rebellion

 

sometimes i am angry

and sometimes i am ready to go

i am feet marching and throat red from screaming

i am fists on doors and demanding my existence

sometimes i am speech at the barricade and sometimes,

sometimes i am words as bullets and only watching

 

sometimes i am helpless, but sometimes—

sometimes i am angry

I really love this whole poem and I really should critique things here more often but these are some of my favorite lines. Awesome job, wish I had constructive criticism but I’m mostly just here to love and support people right now.
