The anger that dwells

I noticed, not for the first time
That when I wasn’t feeling well
Anger was close to the surface
And I felt self-destructive

I know the anger now and I know
How to release it, once I am aware
But sometimes, sometimes it hovers
And plays with smaller parts of me

And then, always, the fierce warrior
Comes back and tells me, “Hey you,
We need to go do something joyful
Go play somewhere, so anger can go.”

Even though my body groans, and
Even if I don’t feel like it,
I go out and do things, to heal
And set myself free from worry
