Stress can make a mess

They say that stress can be a killer,

But can be exciting like a thriller.

Life devoid of its highs and lows,

Boringly slips by and soon goes.

So live life to the full and sample the stress.

But learn how to confidently clear up the mess.

Some useful reality here. Stress can be debilitating in many
scenarios, one of the more frequently met being that caused
by financial worries that have no immediate alleviation in
view. Other causes are varied and need a cool head and
dispassionate dealings if they are to be accommodated and
placed in the "no harm" bin.
But in the general sense, an old pal advised years ago:
Avoid stress - and he was right.

Bravo Hugh! Great poem!??

"But learn how to confidently clear up the mess" is a very true statement because Stress in itself does not kill. What kills is the way one reacts to the stress thereby keeping themselves in a constant state of anxiety and so, your statement in it's poetic form is absolutely correct!

If you have no objection, I would like to be able to give this poem to my clients that I treat for Stress Management. It should be on their refrigerators to read EVERY DAY!

Thank you! Jane
