A shock,
A trauma,
An attack,
Your body is flushed with adrenaline,
Fight or flight,
The cortisol keeps you there,
Keeps you battle ready,
Your eyes widen,
A slideshow is blaring in your brain,

The body provides,
There’s a syrup of survival in your blood,
A tonic against peril,
Flight or fight,
Do you feel your hands shake?
The sweat upon your forehead?
Do you feel your heart grow to bursting?
The heat as you flee?
The pain as you fight?

  1. Well done! It is a good thing I think…to know the difference between flight or fight.. I mean..

    I can only imagine what my cortisol levels are the days I work! I am able to take flight soon from my current position , and hopefully that will help alleviate some of my health issues.
    Keep up the good work! You have a voice, keep sharing it!

      From what you’ve mentioned before my friend, I imagine the cortisol is off the charts. I certainly hope that the escape from that job does you some good.

      Thank you as ever! ☺
