This Anger

This anger……

Bitter, angry, shameful regret

simmering away inside me,

just underneath the thin veneer

of sanity I project.

This rage ……

Fed by remorse, regret and fear

the hot, bitter coals 

fueling my recovery,

feeding on my tears.

This hate ……

Permeates every breath I take

weighs on my soul,

and yet gives me the strength

to fight, to be whole.

This hope ……

A distant glimmer of light,

warming my broken heart

and lifting my spirits

allowing my fears to depart.
