How to Handle Stress

How to Handle Stress (4).jpgBy: Adrian Drower

So I talk to my parents,
Family, friend or cousin.
I tell them what’s on my mind,
No laughter, I feel better. 

They tell me they’re here for me,
All they want is to help me.
I can see relief in sight,
Soon my mind will be clear.  Continue reading “How to Handle Stress”

First Wave of Stress

First Wave of Stress (3).jpgBy: Adrian Drower

Head pounding like a base drum,
The mind like a tornado.
Feeling like trapped in a maze,
You’re wishing to calm your mind. 

You try yourself to calm down,
but nothing works; you get stressed.
You feel like you’re alone,
Your mind says, “Please make it stop”.  Continue reading “First Wave of Stress”

Do you feel like you can’t think?
Do you feel like you’re alone?
Do you feel like you will cry
because you can’t calm your mind? 

People ask if you’re all right,
You say yes, though you are not.
Your mind says stay by yourself,
Part of you wants to get help.  Continue reading “Stress”

What is Stress?

Does it feel like your head hurts?
Do you feel uncomfortable?
Do you feel strange or weird?
Do you feel like you can’t think? 

Do you feel you’re out of place?
Almost like you don’t belong?
It’s possible you feel stressed,
Don’t panic, we’ve all been there.  Continue reading “What is Stress?”

I’m packing boxes at work,
Sample boxes to be shipped.
So I’m looking for boxes
to pack up other boxes. 

There’s a big mound of boxes,
There’s big medium and small.
I try to find ones that work,
I’m having no luck… ha, ha.  Continue reading “Irony”

Music Connects

Billy Joel sings in my head,
“Why Should I Worry?” is said.
A song I sing every day,
cause sometimes life- not my way. 

“You Gotta Be” by Desree,
Says you have to be yourself.
“Get Rhythm” from Walk the Line,
Says find ways to be happy.  Continue reading “Music Connects”

Part of Life

Do people know what love is?
Love is trust and honesty.
Compassion and empathy,
Communicate and listen. 

Do we know what friendship is?
There’s no fear of being judged.
Sometimes help to face your fear,
They see you as a human.  Continue reading “Part of Life”

My birthday has happened,
This year I turned thirty.
My personal life needs change,
No one said it was easy. 

Poetry for me; easy,
I have over two hundred.
A way of self- expression,
So yes it is important.  Continue reading “An Adrian Like No Other”

A day for celebrating,
Celebrating our fathers’.
Even our father figures,
Happy Father’s Day to all! 

Though the day comes once a year,
We show our love every day.
We share our love and respect,
We trust them; they’re important.  Continue reading “Father’s Day”
