Don't be Angry

Don't be Angry

A Poem by SinisterPotatoe (Jack)

A quick poem about how humans don't consider other humans their equals.


Don’t be angry


Don’t be angry when you’re not accepted

Don’t be angry when you’re neglected

Don’t be angry, respect it, our hatred

Because it’s fate snitch, you’ve been bewitched by a quick switch, you were at the top, so drown at the bottom of the ocean, under our boots

Don’t be angry or I’ll shoot


Don’t be angry when you’re betrayed by your fearful friends

Don’t be angry when your tearful family meets their end

Don’t be angry, don’t be hectic, or we’ll correct it, our payment collected

Which you should have sent but instead, you spent it on yourself and everyone else who helped you out, we’ll give you a real reason to pout about

Don’t be angry if we silence you and shout our propaganda, all because you demand an apology


Don’t be angry when we bury the truth because it’s passed away

Don’t be angry that you can’t last another day with the pain

Don’t be angry, you’ve been selected, to be perfected left bloodied in the cold heat of reality, your no longer free

Because you couldn’t be the same as me, therefore I can’t see you as human

Don’t be angry, you may be fuming, but our flowers of hate are blooming, be happy, like the scent? 

They smell like the blood of the innocent




Don’t be angry, because if you are, we’ll strike you down before you can yell for mercy

You don’t have the courtesy of speaking because all who are weak are fit to be stepped on

We are flowers, and you are weeds, don’t you see you need to be picked?

The garden is overflowing with flower petals

But all the other plants have been uprooted

Don’t be angry, little weed, your unsuited for this earth, find your place six feet below the dirt because you aren’t worth a place in our backyard

I try not to be angry, but when I look at your garden of flowers, it’s really hard

I try not to be angry, but you’ve gone too far

I very seldom reply to reviews, but I promise I read EVERY single one. I look forward to my next review, because it helps me learn.

Whenever you write something about my poems, or the themes of my poems, or criticize me it is not in vain. I will listen, learn and be thankful.

Descriptive voice saying not to be angry. As always this poem is filled with emotion and this time it's with a twist and a metaphor of garden and flowers. Well done.
