How can that be your name?
Isn’t that an oxymoron?
Angry Grace hears that a lot.
It’s the one thing that does not make her angry
Angry Grace took a lifetime
to recognize her own value.
She was so afraid of her power
that she willingly sacrificed herself
to Depression and got ulcers.
Depression used Anger
without Grace to bully her.
Anger without Grace
turned in on herself
and buried her self-worth.
She lost the ability to see clearly
and unemotionally her role as a friend.
It took Pain, another buddy with an identity problem
to acknowledge that even though
Angry Grace is not pretty or popular
she partners with Truth.
And everyone claims to love Truth.
Angry Grace covers for Truth.
Truth is able to show his vulnerable side
Truth is simple and modest
Angry Grace is not.
She comes in flashes.
She comes in cycles.
She comes through wounds.
She comes through love.
She is hot and cold at the same time.
It’s no wonder that Angry Grace is a hard beauty
