The common kink

Though it took me years 
To strike a truce
With my body, fears 
Will still turn loose
The fight-or-flight response 
That helped me face 
Physical danger head on 
In less policed places, 
Only now they will force 
Me to react similarly
To stresses that pose
No problems except mentally: 
It does absolutely no good 
And prohibits clear thought, 
Besides causing high blood 
Pressure and what not.
It just goes to show
That I’m semi-savage;
And that even though
I am above average.
