My Fight with Anger

How many years now?
Post adolescence,
I have tried umpteen number of times
to close every loophole
so that one of the five most dangerous killing habits of any man,
cannot enter my system.

Alas! Like a hydra with tentacles
it will enter my system
through unimaginable new loopholes
and put me to remorse
no end.

I try to calm myself
fighting against self,
make a pledge new, and
try to peg the new loophole.

But the walls stand tall;
and I do not know how,
again someday,
the demon called Anger
will just hold me by my head
and batter it on stone wall
of everyday life.
New loopholes get created.

This is the story of a rather innocent responsible man
who just fails to fight the demon called Anger
now and then
for no fault of his,
just trying to be well-meaning in life.

God, give me strength,
so that such events become rarer and rarer,
now that I know I shall never win the battle completely.
