Burning Emotions

Poem By Leah Bonnett

Anger is a virus
Slowly killing the person you are
Ripping all the compassion in you to ash
Making your heart heavy with hate
You welcome the fire raging within you
It is easier than feeling the pain
The pain that brings you to tears
So you welcome the anger to live inside you
Until the day you stop running from your pain
The day you stand and face it

Comments about Burning Emotions

It's a nice, short poem that has described the destructiveness of raging anger, which turns our hearts 'heavy with hate'. A well written poem.

Beauty In Darkness

Its growl echoed across the night sky
The clap of thunder
Lightning crackling like electricity
Rain crashing down on everything insight

Let It Burn

Fire is wild and carefree
Crackling spontaneously
The relaxed look of the flames
As they dance in every direction

Never Back Down

The girl froze in her tracks
A wolf standing before her
Glaring with its deep golden eyes
She glared right back

My Mother

My mother is like the sun
Warm and loving
My mother is like a lion
Brave and courageous
