Expect The Unexpected
In the mix of panic,
I often leave my tools behind
Because the waves hit like a flash
Engrossing bright white-light memories over my reality.
Iâ€™ve had them in crowds of massive people,
At stores, restaurants, and friendâ€™s houses.
Iâ€™ve had them during car rides,
On elevators, airplanes, and roller coasters.
You name it, and Iâ€™ll bet
Iâ€™ve already panicked in and around it.
When Iâ€™m overwhelmed in this mind set,
The ones next to me are the most important.
The girl inside my strong body wonders
Stuck in a shocking mess of ponderings
While the face sitting next to me
Calls me back down to Earth.
Itâ€™s going to be okay,â€
I thankfully hear someone say.
When youâ€™re in a state of panic,
The brain shuts off language production.
If youâ€™re with a friend or family member
Who suddenly gets eerily quiet in the minute,
This could be the on-set of a panic attack.
Donâ€™t forget to bring them back down to Earth
By saying the crucial words of Loveâ€™s truth,
â€œJust breathe, slowly inhale and exhale,
Itâ€™s all going to be okay.â€
