Outside forces pulling
Stretching me in all directions
Caught in the middle, I’m close to breaking
Trying to keep it together
Holding loose ends tightly
Because I’m not

    • Thank you. I’m not feeling stressed now. I’ve seemed to have found a good balance for me. I’m reading a book on stress for a book study I’m doing with some friends and middle was today’s prompt so I put them together.


    • Thank you for your comment and visit. Stress has a way of creeping up on us, doesn’t it? I have found ways to deal with it. Writing poetry, gardening, reading, and taking walks or hiking are things that help me. Also learning to say, “no” has helped, too. I can’t do everything! πŸ˜‰
