Stress - Poem by Jeffrey Kastner

I'm confused, ain't in the mood
haven't gotten sleep, an my eyes burn
it's a lesson learned

I know what to do, don't mean to be rude
nothing to eat, and no money to burn
it's a hard lesson learned

Burning inside, on my mind
stress, more than I can take
big mistakes, heart aches....,
scared to death, waste my breath,
just a waste of time

What you choose, an believe you
me, there's no time to burn
another lesson learned

I'm feeling used, take it from me
I've been knocked of my feet,
once again I've been burned, you live and learn

It's what is learned, that is the key
take the time to understand, then you'll see
tell me what it takes to believe

Burning inside, back of my mind
stress, more than I can take
big mistakes, heart.. aches.....,
scared to death, I'm going to waste my breath,
is it all just a waste of time

    What we feel inside is mixed up and confused when we succumb to stress...

    no matter how much we tell ourselves we should be able to cope.. we cant...

    All we can do is recognise our state and try and find that point of serenity that allows the mind to unwind... then we can face making the changes to stop the stress...

    Unfortunately it will return again and again... our lives are so complicated...
