My Soul

Updated on August 4, 2014

Anger from Within

by Jeb Bensing

I am frustrated,
I am Bent,
Don’t know why my anger is Devil sent.
I am not innocent,
I am no saint,
Passing my anger to her every day,
Even though there never was intent.

She is a part of my soul!
It’s expressed every day,
Even though my anger taints her in every way.

She doesn’t know why this must be,
It’s just a part of me.
Why do I continue to be;
Angry! – Explosive! – Opinionated!

Never realizing the mirror image of me,
The one who stands on the outside and can see.
The little eyes who tries to comprehend,
Why her Daddy is angry from beginning to end.
She is the true victim.


We are connected in every way.
Growing together day to day.
Learning how to coup with loss,
Realizing more is gained.
We just have to see,
Let things be,
I have to let her know,
The anger belongs to me.
I have to cast it all away.
Never forget but,
Let it stay,
Tucked away,

Knowing there are now better days.
My spirit is intertwined to the ones I love.
The soul is nourished from everyone.
She has to know that I am a better Dad.
I must begin to truly understand,
I am loved and do have,
A better life than the one I had.

      Half the battle to be won is admitting your faults. ^

      Thanks for noticing, it means a lot to me when others take something from my emotions. I owe a lot of credit to my wife Bernadette for loving me unconditionally. The patience added with understanding, has helped me take notice of my strengths. I am so grateful to be a Son, Father, and Husband.

      "Lift and restore your harmony

      When walking on the dark side

      Find your balance to just be

      The Self you no longer hide"

      - PD Burns

      Jeb, it seems you have gone through your dark side, faced your demons and are finding your balance and harmony. Good for you -- your strengths show in this remarkable poem you wrote that is a way to give to others in the same stages of a journey. Well done. Voted Up + +

      Knowing thyself is a beautiful thing. You've expressed deep introspection well here, Jeb. Very touching, the images are powerful. Voted up, useful (to others who are caught inside their marital anger), and beautiful. Shared as well.
