Hold It In (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #24)   Leave a comment

Hold it in, hold it in,
‘Til your world begins to spin.
Keep the thoughts below the surface, keep them securely within.
Breathe it out, breathe it out
Keep it calm and do not shout.
The repercussions would be something you could really do without.

Hold it in, hold it in
Hold it strong and you will win.
You will win the argument by never letting it begin.
Breathe it out, breathe it out,
Keep lowering the amount.
Find a solution or compromise, that’s what you’re all about.

Don’t get hot, don’t get hot,
Don’t become something you’re not.
Count to ten and take a second, remember what you’ve been taught.
Keep it cool, keep it cool,
Take you darker self to school.
You’re it’s prisoner no longer and your mind is yours to rule.

Don’t get hot, don’t get hot,
Soon the rage will be forgot.
You spent a little bit of patience for the victory you’ve bought.
Keep it cool, keep it cool,
Just like an undisturbed pool.
In control of your emotions, you are no longer a fool.
