FRAGILE
A poem penned from the experience of being spewed upon

People are more
fragile than they appear
sometimes
behind assertive voices
and a best foot forward
unmet needs mingle
with untame emotions
mixing a volatile brew
ready to erupt
unexpectedly
spewing hurtful debris
in unintended directions
finding unsuspecting targets
inflicting undeserved
pain
