2 (who?)


Working every morning
Working every night
Your job gives you money
Helps you pay for light

Raising up your children
Teaching right from wrong
Showing them how to read
Even teaching song

With your steady income
You pay off the house
No one has to worry
You sleep like a mouse

The moment you wake up
There is peace no more
Your son comes up to you
Says his throat is sore

You call up the doctor
Check the coffee pot
There is nothing in it
It's not even hot

You tell them the problem
They put you on hold
And while all this happens
Breakfast's getting cold

You look up at the clock
You are almost late!
You quickly scarf the food
Sitting on your plate

The doctor gives a time
And you write it down
You rush into your car
Drive off into town

Entering the freeway
You scream out in rage
You've slowed down to a crawl
Trapped inside a cage

Throughout this whole morning
Stress is building up
It fills up your body
Overflows your cup

Don't let it get to you
Stress is such a pain
It clouds up your thinking
Puts strain on your brain

The worries that you have
You must all release
Don't let them trouble you
Problems will decrease

You must create some time
So you can relax
Take your family and leave
Far from stress's tax

You will feel much better
When stress disappears
Possibly in a way
You've not felt in years
This is a poem about stress. Which is something I rarely have. Anyways as you can tell by the context it talks about adults, but it can also apply to teenagers or any other age group as well. Stress can suck and it just makes your mood worse. Plus your immune system performs worse under stress.

Trust me, relaxing even just one day a month will make you feel much better.

easy bro, hope everything gets better (the best, possible)
Yeah I'm doing good. The poem just popped into my head but I wasn't under any stress at the time. I actually rarely get stressed out.

I thought this would be a great poem because it relates to so many people.:D
