“Anyone can become angry-

that is easy.

But to be angry

with the right person,

to the right degree,

at the right time,

for the right purpose,

and in the right way-

this is not easy.”

So, Aristotle,

how can we alter our anger into appropriateness?

channel that emotional outburst of fire onto someone who truly matters?

suitably tame that fire?

when the invisible monarchy called time, agrees?

authentically?

so that it means more than just…

anger?

p.s. While at my internship, I collated packets regarding how to manage one’s anger and utilize the emotion for healthy change. In the packet was a poem written by a wise man. His words and the structure of his words did challenge me. So, here’s to the challenge that comes with anger.
