After long years of keeping grudges like a sophisticated adult. one day of screaming, crying and badmouthing everyone feels therepeutic.

today the monkeys rampaged my neighbourhood. they tore down most trees, stole from houses left everyone intimidated.

more than for food, it was as if they struck for their shrinking habitats. every hate word with utter vengance.

in the end.. by the sight of them disappearing in the horizon like bandits or the turks after rampage.

and as my personal aggression subsided... i felt an equal calm..

i felt like them

We evolved from monkeys...and anger takes us back on that path. What separates us from the creatures of our past is that we control anger rather than be controlled by it. Well....i wish i could say that abt everyone.

To become angry is to be human.
To become anger is to be animal"

yes...it feels like you have spit out something that tastes like shit, after years of keeping it in your mouth.

Oh you put this so poetically. Beauty...

guess this is something I can relate to...one needs to release oneself once in a while. The things that are bottled up. And you've put it aptly right from the first line through the last. Thank you.

when one feels angry, should one control it (and thereby keep it within oneself) or should one simply let go and scream (thereby creating a scene which one would anyway regret later on)...i don't know what one should do...i've tried both, neither works...
btw why don't u give ur posts a title?
