Another rhyming poem.

Dam It

Dam the waters of your heart's river to cease the emotional flow.

Keep your feelings to yourself; let no one else know.

Dam your mind's running stream so no thoughts get out.

Keep your secrets inside; don't spread them throughout.

Dam your past's creek and all the memories it would tell.

Keep something for yourself; what good is a dry well?

Retain your flow to remain a puddle, better yet a pond.

Don't give it all away; fall prey to the parasitic bond.

There are those who want what waters you possess; want to merge.

But better to resist that temptation; better to dam that urge.

Dam yourself completely so that you can keep it all in.

Who has to know all your virtue and vice; all your goodness and sin?

Preserve the lake of your self's form, no matter how big or small.

Use what you can to dam it; whether sticks, stones, or brick wall.

Let your estuary's effluence cease altogether; or at least to a slow crawl.

So just dam it all up. Dam it all.
