Tonight

All the years I’ve been angry

All the years I’ve suppressed my rage into depression

Keeping the peace by shutting my mouth

Losing my health, my sleep, my self-respect and sense of purpose

All those years filled with fire

Tamped into noxious embers

But always threatening to flare

All those years may have ended

As I screech out in anger

Hoping you will comprehend

And getting angrier as I see

You ignore the eruption before you

Out of ignorance or disbelief

Not out of malice, oh no,

But out of entitled contentment.
