Uncontrolled anger can take a toll on both your health and your relationships. Uncontrollable angry emotion, can be a sign of serious mental health problems. The poem below perfectly pictures an angry person, who is likely not to seek help.
“This is me!”, An angry man says
“I cannot take that rubbish;” in rage he fumes
‘We all have this trait in our family” Anger displays itself
For, in a moment I destroy years of relationship
And I make offenders go in shame
I reside in the bosom of the fools
I open door to danger, and make a mockery of my captives.
You may say many millions of sorry afterward
But the scars may never be wiped off
Just because of that moment of madness
For battle of life is planted and stirred up
But many do not know it was an occasion they exercise lack of self control
If you know who I am, you might get angry but you will be in control of my ill,
You will heed the Wisdom in the Holy Book that says
“Let no sun go down upon your anger”
For strife, rancor, and unforgiveness are part of my deposits
Hatred and murder are part of my purchase
“You might feel mad about a case and situation
Heavy words may about to reel out from your bowel!
Keep mute, walk away from the region,
You might soon overcome the moment” wisdom counsels

Some people are taught that it’s wrong to get angry, others are taught it’s their right to get angry! The truth is that everyone gets angry. Getting angry is something we all do. It’s what we do with our anger that matters.
