Misunderstood


Some say she is angry

From time to time


Yet it is never really

In her armoury


She creates


Challenges


Others cannot meet


She gives us lessons

From which to learn


The white froth


Smacks


Against the immovable


Showing her power to impact


Her implicit authority

To alter our world

At will

Has us wondering


Why she needs us at all


Some say she is angry

From time to time


Advice in dealing with her

Is a must


So many things

One must keep in mind


Though

It is not her rage

One should fear


Do not question her motives

Or her moodiness


Do not query her influence

Or dedication


Resist the temptation

To retort

Or believe you can win


And never spit in her face


Lest she spit back with interest


Some say she is angry

From time to time


However, I fail to see anger

As her weapon


It has been my experience

Across the years

To note emphatically


It is something


We should call inherent
