Anger


I am angry at the world

I am angry at an invisible novel virus


I am angry at a government who chose dollars over humans


I am angry that even now they don’t do the right thing


I am angry at local governments


I am angry I still reside in Florida


I am angry at the selfishness of others


I am angry that just when things seem to go well they end up going bad


I am angry at improv


I am angry at how my voice is drowned out


I am angry I can’t yell loud enough to be heard


I am angry that my kids need extra emotional support


I am angry that I need extra emotional support


I am angry at the walls of my house


I am angry I can’t escape to the movies


I am angry that I can’t focus enough to read a book


I am angry that I’m not creating


I am angry I have a vestibular injury


I am angry at my life choices


I am angry over an incident in the third grade


I am angry at hypothetical situations of the future


I am angry with this moment and the moment right after


I am angry that social media still seems to push unrealistic life expectations


I am angry at the news


I am angry that it’s so hot


I am angry that it just rained


I am angry that it feels cold in my house


I am angry in my own skin


I am angry at technology


I am angry that every day feels like the one before


I am angry at how structured my life has become


I am angry that the days have a lack of structure


I am angry at the concept of time


I am angry I can’t fall asleep


I am angry that I sleep too much during the day


I am angry that people are panic buying


I am angry that I can’t find space in a world where we do nothing but physical distance


I am angry that I can’t hop in my car and go away


I am angry at humans


I am … heartbroken
