Anger

von Norbert Rath

If you are angry with yourself, try to calm down.
It might be good to analyse the reason.
Then either what is left is a small frown
or you reach out to heaven and cry treason.

Of course injustice all around you can incite
your wrath – and call for action to defend
the weak who, sitting in a dreadful plight,
don’t know when all their troubles once might end.

Anyway anger is a powerful emotion
which must be held in check just not to hurt,
but lends incentive to humane devotion,
moves deeper than a superficial flirt.
