To become physical and hurl my anger
by AHO Speaks
On to my beautiful bird as if a stranger.
No I would have treated a stranger much better
For them I would have sent an explanatory letter.
How dare I inflict anything but joy on a gift given to me
A reflection in the mirror would destroy my ego you see.
I am the powerful, pompous and prideful one
Certainly it was a battle; I wish I had not won.
My partner in life, my companion, my wife
God forgive me; for striking twice.
Who am I to lash out
Who am I to angrily shout.
This is a gift from my God for the remainder of my time
How dare I injure and abuse; what is not mine.
Forgive me God as the gift I did attack
She is my friend and I need her; and that is a fact.
I will treat my bird as I treat all my birds
Softness, caring and sharing and more than just words.
