Deep inside beyond presence
Fundamental human essence
Beneath surface beyond reason
Emergent response to treason

Rage a memory primordial fear
Terror of birth injustice here
Rises up if crossed or burned
Violations pleading spurned

Reactivity rips things apart
Contrast a compassionate heart
Forgo devilish blood revenge
Or risk suffering spiteful edge

Use intensity grow a stronger heart
Accelerate this human art
Reservoir of this powerful force
Energy from a profound source

Trespass poisons a compassionate soul
Violation makes you less whole
Beckon caring love sweetness more
Your soul births what you came for

See betrayers needing your love
Needing warmth not a shove
Respond with compassion not vitriolic hate
Ticket through an evolutionary gate

What triggers and taps into your rage?

Next time ask what is there to learn and transmute energy into something that resolves?
