Why do we get angry over little things?
Is it because we're really angry over bigger things?
Does our anger drift away from its intended recipient,
only to be unleashed on someone or something different?
I speak from experience.
When I'm stressed about this but I snap at that.
It isn't always fair who ends up receiving that anger.
I've been guilty of it, and victim to it.
Apologies, real apologies, go a long way.
Yet if we do not change our behavior they ring hollow.
So we must try to change, to see our anger for what it is.
Anger for the right purpose may be justified.
But for the wrong purpose, it is always terrible.
I try not to be angry, but I still get angry.
Less as I get older, and as I've learned to see myself.
It's okay to have anger, but don't allow it to consume you.
That serves no purpose.
