Hitting The ‘Pause’ Button

Stress builds steadily

with multi-tasking,

trying to meet the requests

as I know quite well

they’re ‘demands’

and not ‘asking’.

Pulse rate picks up,

palms are clammy,

something’s going to give

and it won’t be pleasant

if I don’t reach out and press

‘PAUSE’.

My previous life encapsulated in an astute and fascinating poem - thanks for reminding me why I quit, to learn to write, Hully. Excellent.

Your poem is how I feel. How many of us feel. There are times when I just want to walk away and destress.
