Frustration~A Constanza

Frustration Dams Emotions.
Frustration Dams Emotions

Nervous with my fists clenched so tight

Gripping the armrest and sweating

Anxiety brings much fretting


Holding anger in with great might

Restraining my tongue from blurting

Saying things that could cause hurting


This process gives me a real fright

Trembling I say a silent prayer

Please remove your cold sullen stare


Stopping me is really not right

Placing a dam blocking my plans

From my life please remove your hands


When I speak out I see the light

I am my closest and best friend

Be with myself until the end

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Sweetie..I’m not sure about the constanza (?) format, but I dig what you say about when/how to release or to keep in anger/frustration/fear. That’s what all resentment and anger boil down to is FEAR.
