When I Get Angry
Paige, Age 10, Vancouver, BC

My stomach rises quickly
My hands start to tremble
I want to say bad things
To smack, to hit, to scream

I try to calm down,
It doesnít work
I say things
I know I will regret

I try to make words
Which equal what others
are saying about me

Itís like a test
Who can sling the worst insults?
Even though I excel
I somehow hate it
at the same time.

I try to explain my anger
I feel I canít control what happens
Or stop the rage beneath my skin

Why is it so hard to control?
