Rage vs. Love


She yelled at a man who tried to help

Who tried to save her from herself

Driving down a one way road –

She opposed the traffic flow.


The man was a stranger,

But the man was a friend

Kinda like a guardian angel

When her strength was far spent


Her mouth was dry – her muscles were tense

Venom in between her ears – so much trash in her brain

She had been mistreated by those who’re meant to love her heart

And it made her so so so so… so so very very mad!


Yet, the man was kind enough

To stop… not once, not twice, but thrice…

When those who’re supposed to care

Weren’t there although they were…

She yelled at the man who tried to help,

Who tried to save her from impending hurt

It felt like a vein in her brain was just about to pop

Her God could have spared her, but the pain wouldn’t stop!


She could not hear His voice nor could she see His face,

So she yelled at the man – yes, at the man He had sent…

But the man wasn’t moved – when her rage finally stopped

He calmly advised her to turn in the road…


His kindness was Powerful

Now, yelling felt wrong,

So I asked for his forgiveness…

And then, turned… in the road.
