How to Survive

In uncomfortable situations,
Shrink and freeze.
Don’t blink,
Don’t breathe,
Don’t look ‘em in the eye.
Stare at something else instead,
Watch until it's burned inside your head.
Don’t let them see you cry.
Don’t let them know you feel.
Don’t show the pain.
Don’t twitch.
Don’t show the fear.
Forget how to hear,
Forget how to see,
Forget how to feel.
