Angry Girl

I often have trouble with music and lyrics. I like a song, but the lyrics just annoy me because most songs seem to be about the same things: longing for someone to love you, broken relationships, angst. All that stuff I don’t do.

Every now and them I find something that’s simply brilliant. Something I can sing along to and feel and know.

I am not a pretty girl
that is not what I do

I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I’ve got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear

what if there are no damsels in distress
what if I knew that and I called your bluff?

I have been called an angry girl before. Sometimes I feel like I carry so much rage inside me because of all the shit that goes on around me. I rage. I have a right to be an angry girl, because I have learnt to see through the frameworks I am meant to live inside, never questioning. But I am not an angry girl. That’s just what they make me when you don’t want to hear what I have to say, because it makes me the one who’s the problem. It excuses their apathy.

I would rather be angry than not care at all.

One thought on “Angry Girl

  1. Governments, societies and individuals around us are quite often only to happy to call us ‘angry’ and ‘abusive’, which is deemed to be a negative!

    However, they often are the ones that abuse US with their denial of service, long waiting for something we are entitled to, totally uncaring attitude, treating us just as a number, ignoring our needs …

    Abuse and anger are 2 sides of the same coin: one without the other cannot exist.

    Therefore, anger is healthy, as it makes us want to change things that are bad. Without anger, abuse would be unchecked.
    Anger can become destructive when running wild – which is unhealthy. The art, as always, is to know the balance.
