My struggle persists.
When confronted with belligerence I am weak;
Anger bubbles up from the depths of my soul.
Though I attempt to be as the sage,
Civil, calm, understanding, as yet I am not.
This disappoints me–disappoints me greatly,
But I have learned to forgive myself.
It is only my humanness barging through
Exposing me for what I am…a mere mortal.
Superhuman, without feelings or emotion,
I suppose not as I was born, live and will die.
Perhaps next time I will have more control,
Understanding that he who presents as my adversary
Is nothing more than my fellow man,
Ensconced with the very same emotions
That I too struggle to contain.

Thank you very much, I appreciate that more than you know.
you got one thing wrong, your semi super human when it gets to writing
Wow, that is very nice of you to say my friend, I appreciate it very much. 🙂
