When the Stress Becomes Too Much

Homework and writing too many papers

Pledging and late nights

Cramps and craving sweets

Oh the joy


The constant weight on my shoulders

Headaches galore

Fear of not doing good enough

Not being good enough


Breathing becomes shallow

Shaking increases

Tears close to falling 

And I still haven't finished the assignment



When the stress becomes too much

I cry

I scream

I eat a bucket of ice cream



When the stress becomes too much

I find friends

I watch movies

I laugh with them



When the stress becomes too much

I find a way back.
