Stress

No solid ground
A place so far away
I live in a world of
Chaos
Running running
Going going
My life is gone
One to another
Skipping stones
Stepping stones
Slipping stones
I'm drowning
Its a sea of stuff
Floating by and
Pushing me under
I wait
Staring around me
So many things
I could be doing
They float forward
Moving with the tide
'Til they have passed me by
I let go my final breath
And wait for all of it to pass
After all,
Its just stress

Thanks. For me the hardest part is the ending. A lot of my friends are really great poets so I tend to learn alot from them

I know I hate ending! I could think of lines that could go on and on and on...but that could get very boring reading.haha
