When it comes down the path

No escaping its wrath

It bores into your very soul

Nestles in like a splinter

One you can’t pluck free

I’ve seen it decimate some

Who they were long gone

Replaced with a bitter enemy

Of disappointed reflection

others found strength above

Their heart now full of love

Peacefully lowered to their knee

Begging forgiveness from thee

Can’t transfer my responsibility

I let that pain hit hard as it may

Absorbing its impact

A punch to the chest

Til the anger builds

defense mechanism in rest

One I’ve learned to replay

Molding anger like clay

Pain sure remains

But it’s owned by me now

Another piece to grow on

That future 

better day
