    Every destructive emotion
    bears its own harvest,
    but anger's fruit is the most bitter of all.
    Uncontrolled anger shatters friendships,
    destroys marriages,breeds violence in
    families and discord in business,
    and wars between nations.

    We get angry when others hurt us,
    by what they say and do.
    We get angry
    when we don't get our own way.
    Anger can erupts like a volcano,
    or it can simmers for a lifetime,
    like corrosive acid
    that eats at our bodies and souls,
    and we even are unaware of its presence.

    Those who have wounds
    and roots of bitterness and don't fulfill
    the spiritual law of forgiveness,
    they give the devil an advantage
    and open a door to his shemes.

    Satan has come to steal, kill and destroy.
    He has launched millions of demons to cause
    unsound minds and illnesses
    and enmity among men.

    We need to be reconciled to God,
    and also to all those who have offended us
    and hurt us in the past.

    If your brother has sinned against you,
    endure and forgive him.
    The measure you use will be measured against you.
    When you stand praying,
    if you hold anything against anyone,
    forgive him, and
    the Holy Spirit will fill your heart,
    with love and heal your every wound,
    and bring restoration
    spiritually and physically,
    even to your bodies.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to minister to you,
    to visit those places in your heart
    that are in darkness,
    and to bring to the light all the wounds
    that you've been covering and hiding
    for so many years in your attempt to forget.
    Restore the broken relationships
    in your heart
    and you'll be filled with many blessings.

    Day after day we see people with faces
    full of bitterness and anger.
    Hatred not only hardens the heart;
    it also hardens our features.
    Hatred and resentment wound
    our souls and our hearts.
    If we don't heal those wounds completely,
    they'll continually bleed.
    For years we carry grudges
    and a desire to pay back
    those who hurt us in the past.
    If we don't allow God to intervene
    and heal us,
    we'll be forever scarred.

    Every feeling of anger, hatred or resentment
    is an open door to the devil.
    These feelings, once under the Devil's control,
    bring about
    and every kind of disease.

    In your anger,do not sin.
    Do not let the sun go down
    while you are still angry,
    and do not give the devil a foothold.
    Every night before going to sleep,
    straighten things out with the Lord,
    and also with those we may have hurt
    or offended.

    anger does destroy us if we let it.  Especially if we aren't releasing it in an appropriate manner.  I turn my inwards and that makes me sick.  But slowly I am learning and becoming less afraid of anger.

    Thank you
    good thread

    in whatever form, anger is always dangerous.
    easy to say but very hard to control.
    anger opens the door for the devil to come in to take control.
    we have to deal with pride.
    we must cool down in our moment of madness
    to prevent harm to others n ourselves.
    be humble. kneel down n pray.
    nothing wrong to be humble.
    it will bring many blessings into our lives.
    none of us is perfect.
    but by His grace, we make it through.
    thank u so much for your comment.
    u have a beautiful name.

    As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
    We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
    The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
    anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
    while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
    are the sources of peace and happiness.

    Yep. You're right. Wish it was always easy to throw the anger out the window.

    when one is controlled by anger, he is like a madman.
    he is out of control; so it's not easy to throw the anger out.
    because anger won't allow him.
    do you know that anger is a spirit?
    and this spirit of anger is stronger than his inner spirit
    which is weak and dead.
    so how to conquer this powerful spirit?
    meditate? it helps a bit.try to forget? impossible!
    try to lie down and take a break? not possible!
    talk to friends? maybe. because many voices can bring more confusion.
    the only way is     FORGIVE  no matter what
    look to the CROSS
    CRY out to the Lord
    be humble and pray.
    die to yourself.
    die to your pride
    and see many blessings into your life!

    "Be lamps unto yourselves.
    Be refuges unto yourselves.
    Take yourself no external refuge.
    Hold fast to the truth as a lamp.
    Hold fast to the truth as a refuge.
    Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves.
    And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am     ,
    Shall be a lamp unto themselves,
    Shall betake themselves as no external refuge,
    But holding fast to the truth as their lamp,
    Holding fast to the truth as their refuge,
    Shall not look for refuge to anyone else besides themselves,
    It is they who shall reach to the very topmost height;
    But they must be anxious to learn."

    That was really inspiring and pain-staking original and oh-so true. I'm going through a hurtful time balancing my anger with a former friend who pissed me off in the past, as well as an insatiably silly sibling with a kin sense of humor that he'll never outgrow that I'm tired of turning the other cheek on. This is something that I really needed to read to help renew my exhausted tolerance and sense of virtue toward undesirable people. Thanks for writing this poem. I can't wait to read more of your work.
