Keep A Grip On Yourself - Poem by Cody Maxie

Lock them away, displace the key;
Never give in to the throbbing plea.
Forget about your believed wrongs and rights,
And abandon your ability to take fright.

Why would you want to become that?
To have no texture, as something flat?
You need them so much, keep them at hand,
They make us humans something quite grand.

The world may steal your emotions;
People might rip your heart in two.
Don't give in, they'll drain your oceans
Of love and care away from you.

Do as you prefer, live free.
Clench your emotions close to the soul.
Society wants you to be another draftee;
Mind them not, play your own role.
