In an instant would you know,
if your instincts are the way to go?

Making a move could cause a landslide,
yet standing still could be the split-second  
that takes a mans life.

Fear may grip us, holding us back while the 
adrenaline rushes to provoke an attack.

It's a judgment call upon a razors edge, feel 
the sharpness intertwined with dread. A threat
is made with vicious intent, in mere seconds a 
loved one could be dead.

Our instincts are built in for a reason, like a defence 
against reasoning, called upon in that instant when 
you freeze up.

Giving you the ability and strength to seize the moment,
step up and abruptly diminish fear.
