Stress Can Be A Killer



Stress can definitely be a killer It can turn life upside down A person might not even realize it The reason for wearing a frown It could be something quite simple Meeting someone the very first time An interview for a high paying job Totally oblivious of the signs We all must be mindful of the pitfalls Prepare for roadblocks unseen Wary of all the curves in life's journey A prodigious challenge it seems The answer I've found is just let it flow Probably easier said than done Gotta try coz the alternative's not good To fix it, you are the one To sum up, I'm offering this bit of advice Been around the block a few times What I've learned in all my years Is relax and things will be fine! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Grandpa Troll says stress is good for me... He says he gave me a reason to get up, run around(with a bottle of barbecaue sause), and the need to really think (to out think my dragon, that is), and the will to do things(like getting even with my dragon)... He says my acting like a petulent child is better than my falling asleep at the computer every day... Stress may not be good for us... but it's way more fun... some times... Except now I'm looking for new insurance... they don't like dragons!

    That dragon guy of yours is going to make a whole pile of dough! Thank him for me will you! Hugs from the "about to be" rich old guy! xoxox
