Shhhh...Don't Tell

i hold me up so well…
its what i must do
alot of deep deep breaths
in through the nose
out through the mouth
calm assuring breaths
often my eyes close
as my breathing slows
as my heart rate eases
but i don’t see anything
and i remember they may see
so i hurriedly pop them open
no need in them knowing
hands close in grips
tightly squeezed
nails dig deeply
until i realize
doesn’t matter anyway
im that big girl
tougher than nails
she doesn’t show
she doesn’t tell
they won’t know
they won’t understand
cause she holds up so well…

Shhhh...Don't Tell
