    Without a shadow of doubt we all want to get out...
    of something!
    The job that has reached the glass ceiling, the loveless
    marriage that has been revealing all the false securities
    that you had. The good , the ugly and the bad.
    That ghetto life, the ghetto in your life! That rut, that's
    got you whining and still sitting on your butt.

    Without a shadow of doubt we all want to know what
    life is really all about!
    And how we work it until it's over, how we stand strong
    when we want to fall over, bend over , crumble over the
    least and the greatest things that come our way!
    Do we leave or do we stay? Or do we just up and run
    away! No explanation, just total annihilation of our one
    identification.

    Without a shadow of doubt we want to scream sometimes
    just to relieve stress, from this mess!
    The job, the spouse, the mortgage payment on the house,
    what you doing with , what you doing without!
    But if we do someone will surely call a cop or much worse
    the nearest mental health institution...to remedy your solution...
    all this mental pollution, no Mental Protection Agency to give
    us resolution.

    Without a shadow of doubt we feel the greatest pressure from
    within sometimes crushing all our reserve even what we try to
    preserve and conserve! The jobless life, the man with no wife,
    the empty bed, the bedless bedroom, the person with real
    gloom, the most successful in the nation...or in the room!
    "We all respond to pressure!" What we do with that pressure
    in and of itself, defines who you are...will you pop, burn out or
    will you survive!

    Without a shadow of doubt we know the one who turned us out
    who taught us what raw passion was all about, and then left us
    anyway! How we prayed that they would rue the day, that they
    left us and went away. How we measured each breath by that
    of another, closest relationship besides a child and his mother!
    And did we rebound or catch the next train to Georgia...or did
    we "Simply whither and fade away...invisible to life and love of
    another day!

    Without a shadow of doubt we know we all have done things that
    we have been sorry about. Things we wouldn't want anyone else
    to know...Then we go and get saved and we are suddenly better
    than everyone else...Oh the lies we tell ourselves! Are we rejoicers
    or hater's , discusser's or debater's making your own rules for
    engagement along the way. Do we decide to create or destroy
    today...WITHOUT A DOUBT!

    What I like the most about this is how you pose the question of what we will do under the pressure, sink or swim? Very thought provoking scribe.
