Controlled Anger

Controlled Anger
January 12
Proverbs 12:16
A fool’s anger is known at once, but a prudent man conceals dishonor.

What advantage is there to having a short fuse?
when provoked and control you suddenly lose
everybody knows that your mood is bad
and look out everybody he sure looks mad

You idiot, wouldn’t it be better to sit down and think
about how to respond without raising such a stink?
wouldn’t it be best to let anger work for you?
so you’d be empowered to do what you want to

Any moron can throw a fit
but a wise man will take control of it
any fool can express aggravation
but a man of understanding controls the situation

Inevitably people will get under you skin
they’ll cut you off and shut you in
but if you hold on and seize the hour
you’ll find controlled anger has a lot more power
