Don't Keep It In

don't keep it in
let it loose     give it air
life
hope     give it what it wants
freedom.

hold it in & your hair will fall
insomnia will rule your nights
the birds will stream by
          leaving you in awe
you will walk with your head
          facing the pavement
& though you'll be attentive
you'll step in a great big mound
of .....

the children will laugh at you.
the women will shy away.
the clergy will crusade.

don't keep it in     let it loose
give it air & life & hope.
if it be     if it wants to be
then so be it!
who are we to fight 
DESTINY?
