Stress is a Poisonous Snake
All living creatures endure stress,
Stress comes naturally to all who know its pain.
Stress is the name of a snake that keeps coming back for a bite,
This snake is one of the most poisonous that exist,
All it takes is one fatal and toxic attack to kill our peace.
One attack can assassinate all our calming thoughts,
The poison from stress is poured down our throats.
It flows thick like molasses,
But runs like a raging river,
And the venom takes affect before we can even think.
The many venoms of stress come packaged with any task,
Some have never tasted the bitterness,
But they will soon come to recognize the evil snake.
The packaged stress comes with an antidote,
Some take the antidote fast and swift.
Others take the antidote when the suffering is too much,
We must learn how to deal with the effects of stress,
All people can learn how to avoid the poisonous snake.
Because stress is forced upon us,
No living thing can avoid it completely.
