Poem: Still Breathing

Breathe
Just in and out
Try not to shout
Breathe
Keep calm
Press palm to palm
Breathe
Try not to yell
Stay in a shell
Breathe
Try not to hear
Ignore the leer
Breathe
My ears are pounding
They keep hounding
Breathe
Don't let them see
Their words get too me
Breathe
Out and in
Block out the din
Breathe
Don't cry
Force a lie
Breathe
Bite my tongue
This isn't fun
Breathe
Fake a smile
Only a while
Breathe
Don't let it hurt
White knuckles on my shirt
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
