I'm holding back
An attack
I feel a surge 
Of the urge 
To pay someone back.
Folks need to step off!
They hate, denigrate
Berate and scoff
Forever prejudging
Deliberately nudging me
Straight to the brink
Oh, I do think 
It's about to be on!
I'm holding back…
They need to just leave me alone.

Can't these fools see me slipping?
Ready to flip
About to lose my grip?
Why are folks tripping?
I'm about to burst
Can't they see?
This thirst 
For evening the score
Has got a hold on me
Even more than before.
It's best that they stay away from me.

Could it be that I just need some space
Perhaps a change of scenery?
I should up and leave this place 
Surround myself with greenery.
It's high time 
I put some things behind 
And find a place in my mind
Where none of this matters to me.
Yes….I agree…

I'll reflect
Connect with my good again
Only then
Can I return to being my best
But first…
I need some serious rest.
