How to Avoid an Explosion

A poem for SoCS: Lid and FOWC: Indeed. The first thing that comes to my mind these days when I encounter the word “indeed” is applying for jobs, and I’m glad that my poem is not about that.

Keeping a lid on all emotions —
Energy with explosive force —
Only kicks the can down farther,
Making the situation worse
As resentment builds and pressurizes —
Setup for something dangerous indeed —
May be quite scary to let it out,
But then the human psyche is freed.
