Controlled Anger

Proverbs 12:16

A fool’s anger is known at once, but a prudent man conceals dishonor.


What advantage is there to having a short fuse?

when provoked and control you suddenly lose

everybody knows that your mood is bad

and look out everybody he sure looks mad


You idiot, wouldn’t it be better to sit down and think

about how to respond without raising such a stink?

wouldn’t it be best to let anger work for you?

so you’d be empowered to do what you want to


Any moron can throw a fit

but a wise man will take control of it

any fool can express aggravation

but a man of understanding controls the situation


Inevitably people will get under you skin

they’ll cut you off and shut you in

but if you hold on and seize the hour

you’ll find controlled anger has a lot more power
