Never get angry

I was angry,

My heart was hurting.

My head was pounding.

I was feeling so bad,

Yes I was so sad.

 

My mother smiled and said,

“Close your eyes, and count till ten”

I slowly felt my anger go then.

 

My heart was happy,

My head was happy,

I was happy.

Everyone around me was happy.

My mother said,

“Never get angry”

 It takes your happy feelings away.”
