Rage

Rage
Seems entirely reasonable
When it has overflowed the river’s banks
and caught you up in the flood.

It may even be reasonable
by this world’s rules.

But rage is a harsh master.
It will hollow you out
and fill you up, so that you can’t even
recognize
that the rage
burning you up
is not
who
you
are.

There are many lies
that the voice of anger
judgement
hatred
uses
to justify itself and distract
from the truth.

The truth is
nothing that threatens you
is.

Nothing can hurt
who you actually are.

The thing that can be
hurt
is the thing you think you are.

You are so much more
than the rage monster,
though if you ask it,
it won’t be the one
to tell you that.

It wants you
to keep believing in it.

A wise man once said
‘Reality is that which
when you stop believing in it,
doesn’t go away.’

My advice; stop.
