It's caged in your heart, like an agitated tigress. The more provoked it is, the wilder it becomes. When it reaches the boil, it explodes and attacks its keeper, or the provoker. It lashes out in all the wrong ways. People believe you to be impatient when this happens, but isn't it their fault that they angered you? Surely it wouldn't have happened if they had simply accepted the flash of fire in your eyes as a silent warning? Why should we take the blame of human nature, or other peoples misuse of words and actions. The fire in your heart can only be put out with water, in the form of an apology...
