    When anger is the only emotion
    That your heart can now convey
    I humbly pray for peace to find
    you. For that is the only way.
    I defend your right to say it.
    But , I wonder about your
    motivation.
    If comparing yourself to other's
    is your daily equivocation.

    When anger is the only words
    that drip from a poets pen
    then
    I find that he is wrapped up
    in anger
    and anger is his only friend

    When anger is your only poetry
    And disparaging phrases your
    tools.
    Those who write winsome love
    poems you have labeled as fools.
    Then that is a disservice for the
    First Amendment rules.

    I may not like everything you say
    But they are your rights too.
    When anger is your only poetry
    Soon no one is listening to you
    And if not for the readers...
    Why do Poets do what they do?

    Very thoughtful piece, sis... I love the way you pose the ultimate question... because the answer does lie in that secret place inside each poet...at the very heart of it, it matters that we matter. And poetry, like music, should provide a way for
    healing...

    Love the title very much, MsLusciousB. Thank you

    Seems like we write our on work
    and then we are on the run.

    On point, and yes if no one read it, I would still do what I do.
    Poetry is like salt to meat, I may not not need it to live, but it sure make it taste real good!!:glasses:
