Do something or shut up

Go ahead
Hold onto that anger
Tight
Let the embers
Burn through you each night
Diminishing your pleasure
Shortening your life

For what

A bruised ego
Over a few misplaced words
Rubbing you the wrong way

There is plenty
To be angry about
In this upside down world
But is it worth the cost
Do you really want to waste
Your most valuable assets

Your time
Your health
Your mind

What are you going to do
To change the situation
Then get up off your
Chair
And do something

Or

Change the words
Pouring out of your mouth and
Circling around in your head
And you will change the life
Playing out in front of you

Hold tight to anger
Or
Release it

Whatever

It’s your short life
Do with it whatever you choose
