To make a title rhyme, always choose words that... um... drat.

This is very tiny
This is very small
This barely ranks as any
Consequence at all

Why does it feel so heavy?
How can it weigh so much?
Why do I feel so beaten up
From it's slightest touch?

It's not the gravity of the thing
Or force behind it's blow
I wouldn't have noticed it at all
Had it not attacked my ego

I can not will not stand for this!
I am mighty! I am strong!
Your reason has no place in this!
I am right! You are wrong!

Facts? You dare to bring me facts?
I laugh at facts, you hear me?
I will scream and rant and yell
And then your facts shall fear me!

There is no walk away from me
You will hear all that I have said
Even if I have to argue you
Alone inside my head

This evening when I go to bed
I won't give up the fight
I'll lie awake until the dawn
Battling through the night

I just hope you'll learn your lesson
And will finally stop denying
That I am great and you are not
And shut up, I am not crying.

That hardly sounds worth it! I hate it when I'm that mad.

Melissa B. said...

Oh, I really like this! A creative, "fun" way to offset your anger, correctamundo?

Eva Gallant said...

Well done!

AWWWWW! Sweetheart, DON'T CRY!
No one who writes as well as you should be that sad! That was a most excellent poem!

I wish I could write stuff like that when I'm angry, rather than just stew in my juices...

Aging Mommy said...

If that was about anger then I hope it worked it out of your system. As for getting things to rhyme, that's enough to get me mad every time I attempt it :-)

Tabor said...

I do like this brave, strong, defiant stance you have taken. You are the writer of words for survivors.

Brian Miller said...

good job releasing it into your words...

mythopolis said...

This seems so heart-felt. Excellent expression. A useful reflection for others, too.

Kate said...

You are brave, you are strong
And don't deserve my pity
Clever girl, winsome words
A stunning little ditty.

Liza said...

That last stanza belongs in a greeting card, and on a tshirt.

I like this very much!

ModernMom said...

Great poem! Well done:)

Mrsbear said...

You ARE great
I agree
far far better
than he or she...
whoever they may be.

Stay strong, keep rhyming.

Deanna said...

Do you feel better now? Whoever - they are not worth it. And you are woman enough to chew them up and spit them out. I hope you are feeling better hun.

Gaelyn said...

Nice way to let off steam.

nick said...

To make a title rhyme, choose words that sound the syme.

It's so infuriating when someone throws facts at you and doesn't notice all the intangibles that are the real situation. I hope the poem helped you deal with it.

Buckeroomama said...

Good, creative way to vent! Heh.

ScoMan said...

Mr. Stupid said...

Slamdunk said...

I just had to break-up and then scold are older boy for scrapping with his sister. We then had the talk about finding better outlets for his anger--I like yours.

Jenners said...

I love how this sing songy rhyme poem has such a nasty little edge to it.

Well done!

Rajat said...

I am mighty! I am strong!...
I am right! You are wrong!...
I won't give up the fight
I'll lie awake until the dawn
Battling through the night...
I just hope you'll learn your lesson
And will finally stop denying
That I am great and you are not
And shut up, I am not crying...

Is it something in your heart or something in your mind.. The good thing is you are battling it and not denying. Lovely poem. n thanks for visiting

Sandra said...

Wow...that would require so much energy, by the time I'd hit the end of the poem, I'd forget why I was crying.
You're good!

Friggin said...

Friggin Loon said...

Vicki Lane said...

Fun rhymes! A hint of Seuss, perhaps!

Shrinky said...

oooh, I think we have all been there at some time! It may not be life-shattering, or even so humongous in the great scheme of things, but right at this minute? You just want to roar!! (And didn't you do it well?)

carma said...

Oh, I can relate to this more than I care to admit.

Unknown Mami said...

I'll tell you what, there is no denying that you are brilliant. You have captured something quite recognizable.

Rosidah Abidin said...

So true, so true... if only we were not in denial. Great rhymes.

injaynesworld said...

So poetry is among your many talents? This is great. What a charming way to express your anger and frustration. I'd love to see it illustrated.
