Source of Frustration

Hysterical rants burst like fireworks

-A tirade relinquishing frustration –

The colors and light, a numbing shock

As a story unfolds and takes flight.


Preemptively, we douse the fire

-Aiming to quiet the thunder within –

Yet, we sense there’s reason for its light;

We’ll only know by risking a burn.


Reaching into the crackling fire

We find a darkness we hadn’t foreseen

Disrupting the thought, we had assumed

Making way for new understanding


Be gentle with that source of frustration

Nourish it with love and an open mind

For beauty grows with gentle release

Embrace the show and you’ll both take flight
