All Filled Up

Strong emotions get bottled-up inside of me

I need a way to funnel them out

And free my mind and heart

But just when I start to feel at ease

Another wave washes over me

And I am drowning in a sea

If only I was able to control what I feel

Taking it little by little instead of all at once

Maybe I could handle some kind of acceptance

Until then I roll with the rhythm of the waves

In and out like a wild ride

Keeping it all inside


I swallow the lump in my throat

I can feel anger simmering inside

But I do all I can to keep it bottled up

There is no place in my life for anger

I’m the quiet one who never loses control

But inside the anger keeps growing

And one of these days it will come to life

Hopefully I will be ready to handle it
