Mad Feels Better Than Sad

~*Marge Tindal*~

Didn't want to do it
Didn't think I should
But I reached in
past the sorrow
finding that I could
express my tears in anger
not losing anything of me
Keeping in reverent thought
friends who were slain
But knowing they would forgive me
for finding a way to ease the pain

Right now -
mad feels better than sad
and in warding off an implosion
I'm going to expel the anger
before there's another explosion


*Thank you, JanetMarie~

Marge, I don't care who you listened to, but I agree about the MAD instead of SAD.  Thank you and many hugs,  ME

my mad feeds on sad

ready to make war

No baby....it is I who thank you
mad...sad...clad in a fad of plaid..been had just a tad..feeling rad
just as long as they know...


WE ARE BAD!!


Well I looked to the sky for my anthem
The words and the music came through
But words and music can never touch
The beauty that I've seen in you

There are about 5000 terrorist waiting to take new action if we fail to take action...will we allow them to remain free and to freely roam through America and spread their death and destruction in new acts of terrorism?   James

I LOVE it when you flex your muscle, Marge!!!  

you know the saying "Don't get mad....get even"? I say "Get mad....and then get even!" I agree to be absolutely sure of the target but once it's found..exterminate!

Yes! Anger has now hit. It's coming in waves. I do believe swift action is necessary.
Thank you for sharing.

I agree...we sat back and watched for so long and did nothing....We know who bombed our ship and our embassys. I am mad.  We must not only surgecial remove everyone that has been involved in any of these attacts, but we must create punitive damages on everyone that has assisted them or knowingly profited from their deeds.  Our government has lived in fear too long...fear of world opinion...fear of causing more attacts on Americans overseas....We must cause these people to fear us....Fear our rage so that nothing like New York 9-11-01 will never happen again.

Death comes not when we cease to breathe, but when we cease to dream.

I finally got through the sadness to the madness, and I agree wholeheartedly with you.  It is time the insanity is stopped, and maybe a good temper tantrum is just what the doctor ordered.  I know I am Canadian, eh  , but I am with you in the mad dept. Great to get it out Marge, I am with you all the way!

Marge:  You are so right!  Now that we've had a few days to deal with the sadness, the anger will propel us on to the next step.

You are so right Marge.  This is so right on.  After sadness comes madness and watch out terrorists.  Joyce
