A Goodbye to Rage

I am not angry anymore
Iím too old this kind of ordeal
Iíve moved into a phase where I want to keep my peace
Because getting into a battle of words
Just isnít ideal

I took the corrective path
And sometimes that involves the law
Even if a tyranny of disagreements echoed back raging
But weíre aging and so we must cut ties
Itís time to withdraw

And the sound of that voice...
It was shouting in anger trying to pour gasoline
But that old tired fire is consumed with nothing left in the pyre
As all I said calmly was ďletís just move forwardĒ
Iím just trying to be mien

A thousand one thoughts ran
Understanding consequences would eventually come
But thereís nothing like knowing I was in control of my reactions
Because in the journey to my personal growth
To rage I will no longer succumb
