Short Poems

1. “The Weight of the World”
Heavy burdens bear down
Crushing weight upon my chest
Stress takes its toll

2. “Endless To-Do List”
Tasks pile up sky high
No end in sight, no relief
Overwhelmed and lost

3. “Anxiety’s Grip”
Heart racing, thoughts whirl
Fear and worry take control
Trembling, shaky hands

4. “The Calm After the Storm”
Chaos fades away
Peace and stillness fill the air
Tranquility reigns.

Medium Poems

1. “Under Pressure”
Beneath the weight of deadlines and demands
My shoulders slump and my mind expands
To encompass all that must be done
Before the clock’s last chime has rung

I feel the stress clawing at my heart
As I try to keep up with the frantic start
Of each new task that comes my way
Oh, how I wish for a moment’s delay

But the world keeps spinning, never slowing
And I must keep up, the fire glowing
Inside my soul, fueling my drive
To succeed and thrive and stay alive

So I take a deep breath and focus my mind
On the work before me, and hope to find
The strength and determination to carry on
Until the day is done, and the stress is gone.

2. “Breaking Point”

The tension in my body grows
As I try to keep control
Of the anger and frustration
That threaten to consume my soul

Every little thing adds up
To push me closer to the brink
And I fear that any moment now
My sanity will surely sink

The pressure builds with every breath
Until I can no longer cope
And I feel like I’m about to burst
With nothing left for me to hope

But then a voice inside my head
Reminds me I am not alone
And though the stress may seem too much
There is always a way to atone

For the mistakes and the missteps made
Along the path of life’s long road
And with each new challenge met and conquered
I find a new strength and hope.

3. “Finding Calm”

Amidst the chaos and the strife
I search for moments of pure life
Where time slows down and all is still
And every breath is a gentle thrill

I close my eyes and let it seep
Into my soul, the calm and deep
Peace that comes with just being here
In this moment, without fear

For all the stress and the turmoil
That life can bring, it’s worth the toil
To find those precious moments of peace
That help me feel that life’s not just a tease

So I take a step back from the fray
And breathe in deep, and let the world sway
Around me, as I find my place
In the universe, with its boundless grace.

Long Poems

The Weight of the World

The weight of the world
Rests heavy on my chest
Each burden piled high
My soul never at rest

Financial woes, job stress
Relationships on the brink
Health problems, family drama
Each day feels like I sink

Endless to-do lists
No time for self-care
The pressure never lets up
It’s almost too much to bear

I try to take deep breaths
To find some inner peace
But the noise never stops
My worries never cease

I’m told to be strong
To keep pushing through
But how can I keep going
When each day feels so blue?

I want to scream, to shout
To let it all out
But the fear of judgment
Keeps me living in doubt

So I carry on with the weight
Each day a never-ending fight
Will I ever find relief
Or will stress consume my life?
