Bite the Bullet

Bite the bullet
chew it hard
you have to do it now
Grit your teeth
for urgent need
demands
your undivided attention
Do not falter
stand on your mark
Halt your trembling hands
stop your racing heart
Face reality now
for it won’t wait for you
Act while your eyes
are prized open
Deal with what you see
swallow it down
digest the painful lead
Feel explosions sunder
all you thought you knew
Erase the image that caused you fear
and feel the peace
that only the dead know of
