shatter.

Whatever you’re felling
it doesn’t matter.
Just control yourself
and you won’t shatter.

Don’t you ever break.
Don’t you ever crack.
Don’t you even think
of looking back.

Great grandmother’s china,
Mom’s favorite teacup,
Don’t even consider
messing up.

You’re a runway model
flaunting a gown.
Don’t let me catch you
show a break down.

Confident smile,
Wave,
Bow.
Blink into the spotlight,
right
now.


Eyes are watching.
You must lead them out.
Don’t you ever start
to voice a doubt.

Plaster on a smile.
They’re expecting a charmer.
They don’t need
to see the chink in the armor.

You’re a china doll.
Perfect porcelain.
Don’t ever let me find you
in sin.

Straighten your hair
face yourself in the mirrors.
I don’t have time
to deal with your tears.

Whatever you’re feeling
it doesn’t matter.
Just hold it together
and you won’t shatter.
