“Anger is just anger. It isn’t good. It isn’t bad. It just is. What you do with it is what matters. It’s like anything else. You can use it to build or to destroy. You just have to make the choice.”

Constructive anger,” the demon said, her voice dripping sarcasm. 

Also known as passion,” I said quietly. “Passion has overthrown tyrants and freed prisoners and slaves. Passion has brought justice where there was savagery. Passion has created freedom where there was nothing but fear. Passion has helped souls rise from the ashes of their horrible lives and build something better, stronger, more beautiful.”

Unbinding disassociation
Profound freedom
Ready to release her rope

The obstacles never ceased
Refusing to return the accursed
Gift of Knowledge

A plea of devastation
A wanting to separate
From attachments within

Walking up the steps
Wondering at ironies
A marriage to numbers

Looking out at the crowd
Hands tied at the waist
Counting faces and hope

Closing her eyes
A smile begins as the rope
Tightens around her neck

She falls in gratitude
At not counting
The Cost
