Breathe In, Breathe Out


Bitterness and rage boil

Underneath this layer we call

Skin, a tangled web

Of emotions,

Mechanical pieces of a

Nuclear weapon ready to blast off.

I breathe in; I breathe out.

For the first time, I am learning to allow myself

To feel, process, and release this anger within,

a fascinating fire burning inside my heart.

And as much as I want to fuel

my anger for mass destruction,

I choose this:

to ball my fist,

Bite my tongue,

And walk away —

Fierce, bold, and beautiful.
