" The Pressure... The PRESSURE ... !!! "

Ya Know I'm Like … " V For Vendetta " ...
When It Comes To … " The Pressure " ... !!!

PRESSURES That Surround When You're On SHAKY Ground ... !!!

For Some These Pressures Tend To Hound … !!!
Because of Reluctance To Show Their TRUE Substance ...

Refusing To Bend In The Face of PROBLEMS … !!!
That Others Suggest ... You Should Try To DEFLECT … !!?!!

But Why Change Your Purpose Because You Are Nervous … ?!?
Such Actions Are Surplus To Facing Life's Hurdles … !!!

Top Athletes KNOW How The Story Goes …
EMBRACE The Fear And Get In Gear … !!!

Then … DRIVE On THROUGH … !!!
Use The Pressure As A Tool To Make SMART Moves …
And Reduce Your Tension Cos' It's Just An Extension of The FEAR To Lose …

Sometimes You Have To Lose To Show You How To Win … !!!!!
Most Pressures Are A Test To Put You Under Stress …

To Make YOU THINK … " Assess and Progress " …
So That You Can Improve And Do Your Best … !!!!!!

But Things Can Get TRICKY Ask … " Sabine Lisicki " … !!!

Now That's No Diss … !!!

She's A Major Finalist Who Plays Tennis ....
But Has Yet To Enlist What It Takes To Win …

... " Major Championships !!! " …

But If She Stays Strong I Don't Think It Will Be Long …
Before Ms Lisicki ... Puts Right That Wrong … !!!!!

See When You're CLOSE TO You're Dream …
You .... HAVE TO BELIEVE .… !!!!!!

You Can't Afford To CHOKE And That's NO JOKE … !!!!!!

You Have To Stay STRONG Otherwise You'll Be Singing ...
Tear Filled Songs ... Because of What Is STINGING … !!!

The PRESSURE of ... Your Loss … !!!!!

FOCUS Is The Key To OPENING The Valve …
Where Pressure Is RELEASED And You Retain Your Towel ... !!!!!!!!

Artists TOO …. KNOW This Is TRUE … !!!!!

A Lot of Pressure Is Applied ….
To Those Upsetters of The Lee Scratch Perry Type … !!!!!

There's A Song That's Called ... " The Pressure " …
That Was Made By … Hip Hop's Tribe …
That Proves That It's A Quest To Put Pressures Aside …
When You Are Given TESTS That Make You Feel …. " ALIVE " …. !!!!!

Like Going On Stage With Things To Relate …
That May UPSET … Because of Content …
In Things You Say ... That Simply Relate …

Your Views About People That Show Them To Be … " FEEBLE " … !!!

Now Let Me TELL YA … THAT'S SOME PRESSURE … !!!!!!

But NOT The Type From Which I Hide … !!!

The Pressure of LIES Is A Much WORSE Ride … !!!
Lying To Yourself Is Then The ... ULTIMATE CRIME ... !!!!

The Types of Pressures Designed By Minds ….
Who Love Adventures That AREN'T So Nice … !!!!!

In Fact I'd Say or Venture … ?!?
That ... When It Comes To PRESSURE …
Within These Modern Times …

It's Lies And YES DENIAL …
That Causes People Trials …
Just Like … " Death On the Nile " … !!!

Hercule Shows When Pressure's KNOWN …
That People Blow And Then EXPLODE ...
Or Even Worse …. Turn On Their Fold ….. !!!!!

See Pressure Allies Itself To Such Vibes …
Which I Wouldn't Advise As A Guide To Good Times … !!!

Now Pressure From Peers ...
Can Lead To … " Veneers " … ?!?
That Really … AREN'T GOOD … ?!!!?

So Me I'd Adhere ...
To Steering …............. " Well Clear " … !!!

of Those In Your Hood ...
Who Would If They Could …
See You … Brought To Tears … !!!!!

See It's All About YOU And How You Pull Through ... !!!
The Moments That TEST Ya' When Options Look … "slender" …

Just ALWAYS REMEMBER You Must NOT Surrender … !!!

When Facing What We Know ...

As Being ….

…. " The Pressure " ….
