bless the angry one

bless the angry one
note from self

bless the angry one
that rises inside—she’s
your very own self
defiant and scared
let your tenderness
land like a gift—
she requires ferocity
to stand up for herself
yet if she remains
outraged for too long
the fangs of her fury will
turn inward and harm
so wrap your heart
snugly around her
