Pressure


water

 

It bears down on me

like so much pressure

pushing, ever pushing

never letting up.

 

School, work, family

always something to do

never any rest or peace

even in my dreams.

 

Overwhelming pressure

leaving dents

in my mind, my heart, my soul

getting deeper all the time.

 

Smothering, getting sick

no strength to push back

going under

and no one sees.
