The Deeds Of Anger
Poet: Edgar A. Guest


I used to lose my temper an' git mad an' tear around
An' raise my voice so wimmin folks would tremble at the sound;
I'd do things I was ashamed of when the fit of rage had passed,
An' wish I hadn't done 'em, an' regret 'em to the last;
But I've learned from sad experience how useless is regret,
For the mean things done in anger are the things you can't forget.

Now I think I've learned my lesson an' I'm treadin' gentler ways,
An' I try to build my mornings into happy yesterdays;
I don't let my temper spoil 'em in the way I used to do
An' let some splash of anger smear the record when it's through;
I want my memories pleasant, free from shame or vain regret,
Without any deeds of anger which I never can forget.

Best Advice
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2011


The best advice I ever received
Advice that has stuck with me
It deals with how I should be.
Read James 1:19 and you will see.

You will find wisdom in the words
Which will move your life forward
If you follow the advice
You won't have to think twice.

If we just practiced these three things
Peace to the world it would bring
The happiness we would find
The words of the Bible there is no other kind!

You will be calm and less angry
To put into practice they are easy.
Open your mind and don't screen
Here are the words from James 1:19:

"Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters:
You must all be quick to listen,
slow to speak,
and slow to get angry."
James 1:19

I'm So Mad I Could Scream
Poet: William Cole

I'm so mad I could scream,
I'm so mad I could spit,
Turn over a table,
Run off in a snit!

I'm so mad I could yell,
I could tear out my hair,
Throw a rock through a window,
Or wrestle a bear!

On thinking it over
I will not leave home
But I'll put all my anger
Right here in this poem.

I'm feeling much better -
Like peaches and cream -
For a poem is the best way
Of letting off steam!

When Things Won't Work
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


I have to say,
It makes me angry,
When things don't go,
The way they should be.

I expect so much,
From things and people.
And when things go poorly,
I feel so ungleeful.

My temper gets hot,
And I don't know what to do.
I just wish someday,
These things would pull through.

But I have to stay calm,
And roll up my sleeves.
Maybe some direction,
Is all that I need.

Anger Is
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020


Anger is a thing that brings
Negative and sad things
Find a way to control your feeling
Don't let it send you reeling.

Anger is an emotion
That can be compared to an explosion
But it doesn't have to be that way
If you control it and keep it at bay.

Anger can hurt and it can harm
When you feel it is reason for alarm
Go for a walk, just cool off
Then sit down and have a talk.

When you don't give in to it
When you don't throw a fit
You will find control you will have
And for that you'll be glad.
