PAIN CAN BE A YARDSTICK

WHEN YOU'RE ANGRY COUNT TO TEN
IF YOU'RE VERY ANGRY SWEAR
IT MAY HAPPEN I CAN'T SAY WHEN
FIND CALMNESS IN THE AIR

TRUST YOUR FEELINGS IN YOUR GUT
BANK ON SURE BELIEF
EXPECTATIONS OF THE TRUTH
WITH ASSURANCE OF RELIEF

STUMBLING BLOCKS ARE STEPPING STONES
WITH COMPOSURE FROM WITHIN
LOSE ALL DEPRECATION
PEACE AND HARMONY BEGIN

WERE ALL YEARNING FOR THE ANSWERS
SENT TO US FROM UP ABOVE
FIRST WE CLEAR AWAY THE ANGER
MENDING PROFANITY WITH LOVE

PAIN CAN BE A YARDSTICK
FOR PROGRESS AFTER ALL
IF WE GIVE IN TO OUR ANGER
WE ARE SURELY BOUND TO FALL

LOL, anytime. ^_^ I tend to be an editor more than I am objective. Just smack me...because it didn't hurt the poem any. :D

Still love this.

Always,
Keri

Excellent poem with a great message. I agree completely. Love how you've expressed this.

Would suggest looking over usage of "your" in the first stanza and "yerning" in the 4th.

Great job.

Keri
