Animosity thickens the air we breath
choking the essence of our souls.
words spat,
tempers flare,
insurrection reigns.

Who are these creatures in our presence?
Faces familar, but demeanor not.
words spat,
tempers flare,
insurrection reigns.

What will become of this chaos,
if discord is left untamed.
words spat,
tempers flare,
insurrection reigns.

Will anything be left remaining,
any sort of semblance familiar?
When words are spat,
tempers flare,
and insurrection reigns.

Ouch...hope the rest of your day goes better, Lori...but anyway, a good way of describing the roller coaster of life when no one's getting along with each other.

 And this I say to you: why? Why? Just tell me why, so I can understand. Why?

Lori I hope you were not too hard on them. Teenagers can be a handful, I should know it was not so long a go that I was one as well. I loved your poem, wonnderful
but I suggest taking a deep breath and been serene. When angry problems only get worse.

if discord is left untamed.

I have 2 of these at home.  I just don't know where they get their personalities from...I mean they speak their mind, they argue with rules and regulations, they think night is a time for playing and then they can't get up in the morning...oops!  This sounds alot like me!  
Just kidding...they do get better.  I have some poems like this one, too.  I'll post them sometime, maybe.

Sorry for my gloomy self today.. Thank God, that a new day is just around the corner. I appreciate all your comments.

If there is anything that I have learned from raising teens it's that it hurts when they bite!

Lori...I have two teenage boys and in their most trying times, they fail to produce inspiration like this from me. Yes, dark, but well written   Love your pen name by the way
