VITAMIN W
(1/17/19)


without
anger

I am
weak

I succumb
to pain

I wallow
in ennui

I become
trapped within
a quagmire
of hopelessness

but wrath

when soberly
applied

can be
quite
the opposite
of deadly

springing me
over
such obstacles

lighting
the fires
of my soul

giving me
glimpses
of immortality

making
the world
a better
place

if only
in isolation
