Okay, now hold it together

You’re overreacting, can’t you see?

You feel hurt, embarrassed, angry

But that’s no cause for tears

Is it?


Clench your fists, hard

Feel those nails dig in to your palm

That’s it, that’ll stop the flow

Before it starts

No one needs to know

How they’ve hurt you


That’s it, crisis averted

And with a smile

You can walk away

To lick your wounds in private


In the dark

It’s safe to cry

Let your tears go

Let them flow
