Exploding under pressure

Composure shattering

Spontaneous combustion

Exploding under pressure

-— . —

How much stress can I bear?

For how long can my brain withstand

All the demands the society makes on it

— . —

Ultimately there will a huge outburst

The dam will break and all the water will flow out

The balloon will rupture, spilling out the gas

— . —

Beware, for this not a threat but a warning

It’s not just a possibility but an eventuality

That today’s lifestyle is pushing us all towards!

    1. No, not personally but our lifestyle does puts us under pressure because of our own expectations and those of the people around us. Thanks Elizabeth for your concern. ❤️😍

  1. WOW Sadje, this is quite an eye-awakening revelation. Love this:
    Ultimately there will a huge outburst
    The dam will break and all the water will flow out
    The balloon will rupture, spilling out the gas

    Honey, this poem is definitely food for thought. Thanks so much for sharing. 😊💖🤗

  2. Exploding under pressure…those days seem to be in the past for me. Retirement is wonderful and being old(er) is a gift. My life is far from perfect but it is pleasantly calm and peaceful…most of the time.
