Shake it Off, And Just Stay Quiet

It’s a lot harder in the moment,

Not to bite into that bitter apple of anger.

And all those little things, the mindless ones,

Are the hardest.

And I bite back,

When my fuse only warms.

But I know, anger’s clothes,

And I know to back away

And shut up.

Let it pass,

Honored, and brushed aside

By a wave

Like that of a persistent ocean

Anger will return on another wave,

But, in this moment,

Serenity is the order of the day.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
