I just gotta. Who else will?

What I Gotta Do

I don't bat an eye

When the walls start to shake and crumble down

My eyes are wide, shimmering, praying quietly- quickly to myself

But if you were standing real real close to me, so close that I could smell your anxious breath, you would have heard my mingled cries and hopes streaming from my mouth.

I don't bat an eye

My face changes a little to almost a crumbling--a tumble--but I straighten it back up for the sake of sanity--

I finally turn away, head bowed, the temptation to complain right at the very teeny tip of my tongue.

Sometimes it does launch into the barrel of peer pressure, I add my negativity in the same pile that everyone else has tossed theirs ,

But other times I stay silent.

It makes the others mad,

But I have to hang on.

I have to. If I want this family to survive I gotta do what I gotta do.

I know there will be a next time, a tomorrow. My goal is to once again not bat an eye.

Hopefully I can pass the ongoing test.
