RAGE

23 Jan RAGE

In the business world today, we are often told to keep our emotions to ourselves.  At the same time we are told to be ‘authentic’ and bring our whole self to work.  This paradox is the cause of much frustration.   We need new methods to express our anger, rage and then clarify our emotions

 My rap, RAGE, is an example of our new process, it helped me release the rage so that I could deal with my issues head-on.

I feel the rage, escape from of its cage I scream and yell my hopes dis-engage.
Cannot breathe well, can’t turn the page Head spins fast, lost in the maze.

I scream and yell my hopes dis-engage.
Cannot breathe well, can’t turn the page Head spins fast, lost in the maze.

My Nerves fester, multiply and breed
On my heart they turn and feed.
A hole burns through a blood spot,
insides left to mould, to rot.
My breath is shallow, forever caught,
I want to fight this lesson taught.
The fury blows, my stomach knots,
I gotta run to dodge the shot.
Clearly I have lost the plot, I try and hide, I am distraught.
I can’t exhale, the fight has been fought, It’s taking over,
I have lost.     
Wait STOP!

No This isn’t right, i thought
The rage must go, but I must not.
It must cool down from simmering hot,
I’ll have to go in and get the lot.

So I reach inside slow
And get it in one go
I take it in my hand And I blow & blow
The wisdom shows
I see, now I know
The rage must stay to fight my ego
The pain must flow
From head to toe
It’s the only way I’ll learn to grow

(chorus)
Rage, girl, rumble and row
Ride the wave, the pain must flow
Rage, girl rumble and row
Ride the wave, your gain will show


Morning’s here, storm’s lost power
Hope feels near, anger turns sour
Water’s chillin, rain turns to showers
Fury yells, but it’s strengths devoured

Praise be, I see past the mist
I’m free, released from its fist,
I look up, I make a wish. That
sea spares me more anguish

You think it’s done?
Beat the dragon?
Think again Hun,
the ride’s just begun

By nightfall
it does another run
Gripping, twisting
my dreams, just for fun

The knife goes in
blade breaks skin 
It goes deep within
Then pulls out again

A moment of
Peace fills every cell
My mind’s relaxed
But prepares for more hell

(chorus)
Rage, girl, rumble and row
Ride the wave, the pain must flow
Rage, girl rumble and row
Ride the wave, your gain will show


And so it goes, back and forth
The wave deflates then comes for more.
You swing around with every move
In hope tomorrow may improve.

Then one day, if you held on tight
The sun will shine, dark turns to light.
The night is clear, no storm in sight
Your eyes are wise, you’ve won the fight.
You’ve won the fight 
You’ve won the fight 
You’ve won the fight
