putting aside anger

My anger lives in me
That means I have a choice
I can choose to kick it out
Or make it go to its room
Or try to calm it with reason
My anger doesn't control me
I don't have to feed its fire
I don't have to drink its poison
Sure, there are things I can't fix
Awful things in this world
Things unfair, that hurt my heart
But I can choose how I feel
I can decide on forgiveness
And compassion and calm
I can make living with myself easier
By deciding to be the better person
Making anger an infrequent visitor.
