The Depth of Rage

By Tony DeLorger © 2014

Stifled by those words in life,

that once released cause hurt and strife,

and we so weak, their beckoned call,

become the puppet of blood and gore,

verbal hate and festered sour,

and we in spite our darkest hour,

unleash such anger and burning disdain,

the target of in-consequence and motive lame,

imparting built up rage and fear,

to hapless prey and angels tears,

and we so vile in Godless wrath,

for all the past and aftermath,

fall deep to all these twisting blades,

that gnaw away as pain cascades,

and no control do we aspire,

to curb the course of this tempest fire,

just bend to all that dulls a heart,

and spew such bile until breath departs,

and we all spent and purging done,

hands in blood and damage sewn,

reflect on what did find a path,

what came from within, what lies impart,

and bodies strewn on blood spilt fields,

a testament of dark inner yields,

where festering pain and anger dwell,

that part of us that embodies hell,

and so we limp away in shame,

for all the pain we've cause that day,

and wonder what could rise up next,

when words from depths so deep and hexed,

trigger lost and hateful past,

to unleash its pain and in occurrence, last.

      Thanks Jodah/ John, words are indeed powerful weapons, and I'm glad you enjoyed the poem. Hope you are well. Take care my friend. Don't get on here much anymore, Bubblews takes time but earns money.

      Tony, this makes me realise the failings in the saying my parents often tried to instill in us as children, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". Cruel words are very powerful and can definitely hurt people. Great poem.

      Thanks for this appeal to practice control of words we speak. We should make the effort to cause comfort and healing instead of pain. Great lines with powerful deep thoughts.
