I am angry. I am at peace.
I hear the laughter of criticism.
I see their mocking faces.
I want to know their security.
I am angry. I am at peace.

I pretend to care about their phoney words.
I feel the space of my empty bottomless soul.
I touch the spacious void of air that surrounds me.
I worry that it's all caving in on me.
I cry when it doesn't and I'm still alone.
I am angry. I am at peace.

I understand the end is coming but will never arrive.
I say, "At least I'm still alive."
I dream of floating down into this warm embrace.
I try to smile, at least through my face.
I hopw it makes you happy; my trials, my smiles. And that you are not offended by my guise for
I am angry. I am at peace.

I enjoyed this.   A good show of conflicting feelings for sure.   Welcome..curl up your feet and get that pen moving.   I want to see more.
