My Rage ~ Song Lyric Sunday

March 2017

It is Mother’s Day in Great Britain and rage is one thing I think about on that day. Rage that my mother left me so early. That’s the lost child that still resides in me and doesn’t understand how she could have been left in this mess.

The adult, of course, has found solace and remembers all the women who have been a mother to her.

May your rage turn into creative action and not become destructive

February 2012

(inspired by Laura Marling‘s Song “All My Rage“)

Cancer like churning my heart

never acknowledged

gnawing my fingertips

to the burning blood

incinerates my lost souls

mercilessly

night by night by night….

lost in the endless

void

of my rage!

Lyrics thanks to A-Z Lyrics

“All My Rage”

Stole my children, left my son
Of all of them, he’s the only one who did not mean that much to me
I tip my cap to the raging sea

Oh cover me up, I’m pale as night
With a mind so dark and skin so white
Is this the devil having fun?
I’d tip my cap to the raging sun

Now all my rage been gone
Now all my rage been gone
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun

Stole my children, left my son
Of all of them, he’s the only one who did not mean that much to me
I tip my cap to the raging sea

My daughter, she’s the pretty one
I married her off to the reverend’s son
Now she lives in a sin-free world
Tip your cap to the brave old girl

Now all my rage been gone
Now all my rage been gone
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun

Now all my rage been gone
Now all my rage been gone
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun
I’d leave my rage to the sea and the sun
