When choosing fight or flight

Before you let your mind -- and mouth -- take off;
before you let those old assumptions 
push you into flight, or fighting,
take a moment: Get your bearings, test your weight,
check to be sure the branch you stand on
is solid, sure, and true.
Now breathe, and breathe, and breathe again,
and see if it might be possible to just -- let go.
