What Makes You Angry

Pain makes me angry.  Pain that stole my life - overly dramatic, I know.  And yet - I could still have been useless with my health.  Shut up, you self-pitying arsehole.  Somewhere to be safely angry would be good.  I tend to shout at the news - often armed with the fish slice as I'm also cooking dinner but it's not really enough.  I'm afraid of hurting people.  Doesn't stop me thinking it, though.  If I had magic powers I would hex the bus driver who drives away despite seeing me coming.  Also the incredibly loud woman at the bus stop and on the bus back home this time last week.  Silencio!  I would have if I could have.  Thank goodness for headphones.

 

What else?  Beautiful, sunny days spoilt by howling gales.  And thinking back to school days with or without magic - there are many people I would have loved to tell them what I really thought.  And frogs!  On wet nights.  Creepy, slimey little buggers who love the driveway.  Why?  Just go off and lurk in damp, nasty places that you're supposed to like.  It's nature, natural nature!  You're supposed to know!  Now dealing with them with magic powers would be great.

My Experience of Anger to Date...

I haven't felt anger for years, I've managed to numb myself from it.  I was always told to not get angry! A forbidden emotion when I was growing up.  If I did get angry, I was made to feel completely and utterly ashamed w...

The Deepest Sorrow
