I rage like a rising river

Bursting my banks

Flooding my plains

Not to be contained.


I rage like a cancer

Infecting a body

Wasting tissues

Destroying cells.


I rage like a farmer

When my crop is ruined.

I can’t feed my children –

Helpless, hungry, prayers unheard –


I seek a bullet to make piece.
