Anger is my Friend

Victory Dalida


Anger, you are my best friend,

For you make all the fruits bitter.

You threw a ball to the wall

but it bounced back and hit you hard.


For many years

We’ve been best friends,

But your judgmental soul

Ruined a perfectly sweet apple.


The sky is clear,

Clear as a wine glass.

But your soul is dark,

Like the shadow that follows you.


We have a lot of great memories,

I won’t deny it.

I heard about this candy shop.

Maybe I’ll go there—

Not for me, but for you.

I’ll buy the sweetest chocolate

So maybe one day

We can start over.
