Anger Management. (an Ode to Rage against Racism)

I roll my fury into ice
I keep the fire in check by frost
I straighten my back against the lies
I try to find the words I lost

I keep the fire in check by frost
I raise my chin against the tide
I try to find the words I lost
I summon all my strength to fight

I raise my chin against the tide
it is my rage that keeps me standing
I summon all my strength to fight
I am unyielding and unbending

It is my rage that keeps me standing,
I straighten my back against the lies.
I am unyielding and unbending.
I roll my fury into ice.
