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”. 

You feel like you may just cry,
Maybe you do start to cry.
For the stress is getting to you
and you just want it to stop. 

The feeling of trapped and alone,
Keeps your mind away from people.
You’re not yourself, so people ask
if you’re all right. You say you’re fine… 

even though your not. 

This is…
The First Wave of Stress
