Escape From Stress. - Poem by Brian Counsell

After working 80hours a week and always on call.
I suddenly found an impossible brick wall.

I slipped and fell and saw the light at the end,
Maybe a voice said your life you should mend.

My priorities are different, I am so happy with life.
No 15 hour days, no conflict or strife.

I work in my garden and my world has slowed down.
No pressure now, no stress and never a frown.

Maybe not quite true, but life is much better.
Which really prompted me to write this letter.
