Anger builds,
I feel a chill,
a wave wash over,
how to deal?
with what I face,
the world’s disgrace,
I can’t shut down and shade my face,
so here I stand,
as red fills cheeks
and hope my voice conceals my shrieks.

    Perhaps the toughest emotion to try and restrain for we wear it on our faces and then our bodies tremble. You capture this so well, Emily!

    1. Yes, most think of Anger as a 5 letter word… but it’s a very necessary emotion sometimes, definitely not always, but it has its uses. It’s one of the 5 stages of grief, for one. For another, it just comes naturally when being a momma bear and having to do things I normally wouldn’t have the strength to do.

        You are absolutely right. And an angry moma bear is definitely not one to mess with 🙂
