1. When I have lost my temper I have lost my reason too.I'm never proud of anythingWhich angrily I do.When I have talked in anger And my cheeks were flaming redI have always uttered somethingWhich I wish I had not said,In anger I have never Done a kindly deed or wise,But many things for which I feltI should apologize.In looking back across my life,And all I've lost or made,I can't recall a single timeWhen fury ever paid.So I struggle to be patient,For I've reached a wiser age;I do not want to do a thingOr speak a word in rage.I have learned by sad experienceThat when my temper fliesI never do a worthy deed,A decent deed or wise.2.
