Why Stress?

Updated on July 6, 2012

The end is coming

which end is that?

the end of the beginning

a place I've been aiming

a singular thought

come to fruition

I didn't know what i would find

not knowing

if wishing or hoping

were folly or nonsense

or faith yet in the yeilding

the end of a sentence

unexpected in fact

as the expectation opens pores

my hair becomes wet

but the end is coming

I cant stop it at all

no matter where I run

this world is a ball

eventually I stop

does it really matter why

the end is coming

should I bother to cry?

if there is a solution

why bother

I embrace the end with open arms

merely bored in the interim

trudging through dross

... what if there is no solution

oh my, what a thought

then no solution

means endless wait for something

could be bad

or could be good...


no solution is a dreadful place to fall

But if no solution

really happened

would sweat or blood

change it a jot?

Nope, these aren't even solutions

just useless working hard

So why worry

why stress

oh yeah, the end is coming

the end of the test

Did I see a solution?

did I let things pass me by?

or is there no solution

I suppose i now will cry

The only cause for stress

is potential not tapped

it isn't the end I fear

but being disgusted with self

at the very last.

      On second thought the crying bit was interesting. I wrote the whole thing in tongue and cheek fashion. it was a commentary one how people face change, ends and such. But even then, much truth is made in jest and I jest in truth and in reflective views through other eyes.

      Resigned would be accurate but not an effective outlook. Perhaps there was a time I would have let the aspect of human nature bother me. I simply don't have that kind of time any more. Whatever I felt I didn't wish to pass on that sense of inevitability.

      It left that impression - that you may have felt those while writing it. My sense of sadness was for what I attributed to you in writing it. If you say you weren't sad, then I believe you. Perhaps "resigned" would have been more accurately what it was I felt you were feeling. Goes to show how wrong it is to try to conjecture another's feelings, though isn't that what poetry is almost designed to cause in readers, to sort of empathize with the writer's emotions, based on words and mood of the poem?

      lol not that I am aware of but then it made you sad when I admit to feeling no such emotion when writing it or rereading it.

      Glad you know that! I was wondering! That was my sadness - - it wasn't clear.

      As Queen sung, "Who wants to live forever?" To every mortal story there is an end. As the last few lines suggest, worrying about the end is fruitless. It is coming and there is no solution but one can do the most with the present. They can be the best and most right now. I guess it is all in how you see your life I guess.

      The sense of impending doom - in an uncertain future, and the probable waste of the viable present in dread and conjecture. . . with no 'solution' anyway.
