    Here I am facing stress
    I am looking him in the eye
    He is warning me of troubles ahead
    I don't think he's telling a lie

    He's saying my time here is short
    He says my well is running dry
    He says I'd better tend to any business
    And, I should take care all goodbyes

    He says there will be no escape
    He says I should not even try
    He says I make it worse for myself
    Each time I start asking him why​

    arthur, i enjoyed these verses on stress
    stress is really a mutha fu ya
    and a warner
    if we can keep from going into the terminal stage call distress or di or double stress then we can count ourselves as blessed and warned.

    Peace and Blessings.

    very tight verse

    Sounds like your brother stress might have handed you over to his twin, anxiety, who is way more dangerous. I been there a lot lately, my friend. I wish you much peace as you continue on.

    I saw the title and swiftly pushed
    to see how you were feeling
    saw you had been enveloped by this brother
    and thought,.. maybe you should find his sister
    to help to calm you down...massage your feet
    let you know that its all..allreet..



    thanks for the poem

    Stress is like a gateway emotion that leads 2 other more dangerous ones if U can't put it in check, and some get addicted 2 it.

    Nice piece, brother, but I don't expect anything less.

    When stress gets the upper hand, it tries to take over, liked the way you posed this.
