Stress - Poem by Marilyn Shepperson

It's always somebody else or thing
That's to blame for all the stress you're suffering
You're not at fault; not one bit
But it's you who can't eat or sleep
For all the worry of it
You keep on making silly mistakes
And that only serves to make you worse
So you make even more blunders
An unretracted cat clawed circle
You feel dizzy and nauseated
To the point of wanting to throw up
And all you've got to hang on to
Before you go out of your mind
Is the straw for the drowning man to clutch
The forlorn hope that things will get better
