In the moment

Oblivious to feelings and people that care,
It’s easier to switch off, there’s less weight to bare,
An objective to learn and just to survive,
But a need to feel pain, so I know I’m alive.

The consistent pressure to be in control,
But allowing another to temporarily take that role,
To stop being independent and compliant,
For just a moment to feel less defiant.

A mind in overdrive and that needs a break,
But without putting too much at stake,
Naturally dominant and yet so fragile,
Is why I allow myself a time to be agile.

It doesn’t take a genius to survive,
It just takes a moment to feel alive.
