What Is Stress?

Stress is a failure to comply with opinions and due dates.

Stress forces procrastination.

Stress brings even the strongest to their knees in times of need.

Stress is an unfortunate destination.


That destination could make or break you.

That we all face at some time or other.

That we might see in school or later when we bid our adues.

That we are all letting it bother.


What is stress?

What casues us to give in to such devotion?

What drives us away from our goals?

What makes us stress out over little things?


Anxiety can be a cause.

Or the scarring from a devostating event. 

Or losing a loved one.

Or being an early-waking high school student just trying to get by under an emotional tent.
