"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."
-Mother Teresa

It's like I'm running.
I can't seem to stop.
I pass by my family, friends, and commitments.
I try to slow down, but I can't.

It's like a clock, constantly ticking, and never ceasing.
Not being able to stop moving.
That's how I feel right now-
like my life is a never ending race.

It’s impossible to slow down and enjoy the view.
My life is too hectic- school too demanding.
Too many tasks to finish to take a breath.
It’s like choking on water-drowning.

There’s a simple solution.
Stop. Stop making promises, stop making plans.
That will cure this monster of pressure-
the monster known as stress.

Stress. Defined as “a strain
caused by anxiety or overwork.”
This, currently, is the title of my life.
This is the only thing on my mind.

It’s like a trickling stream.
It can’t seem to stop.
It passes by friendly faces, and summer memories.
It tries to slow down, to run dry- but it can’t.

It’s like sunlight in July, constantly burning, never ceasing.
Not being able to stop blazing.
That’s how I feel right now-
like my life is a never ending race.

I know that with the summer days approaching,
my daily strains will weaken.
I will no longer carry these pressures on my shoulders.
The added weights will be lifted.

I count down to those days of peace.
To those days of relaxation.
To the days that will be spent with those I love.
To the days without stress.
