Favorite Quote:
one of the greatest tragedies of our time is this impression that has been created that science and religion have to be at war.
-Francis Collins

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
-1 Timothy 4:12, NIV Bible For Teen Guys

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I fought against you

In one moment, I forgot everything I was taught

Now, every day, I suffer too

I suffer for the pain that I brought


I never wanted to bring harm 

But I ignored the voice telling me to yield

On that fateful day, the seal was torn

My anger that was bottled up, had been revealed


I lashed out in blind rage

Never before, had I been in such a haze

The animal that I had kept inside my self like a cage

Broke free, and it was in its final phase


When I awoke from this enraged havoc

I had done more damage than I could realise

My sister was crying in pain, cause I punched her in the stomach

In that moment I realised, it was to late to apologize.

The author's comments:

This poem talks about how my anger issuses got the better of me for the first time 5 years ago. From that point, it would take me 3 years to retake at least some control of my anger, and 5+ years to rebuild my relationships with my family and friends.
