Intense strain can be unkind
to the workings of my mind.
For it distorts the normal flow
of where my mind might want to go.
It screws me up and makes me tense,
and things no longer make much sense.
Then as the tension builds inside,
there’s nowhere left for me to hide.
Those who suffer from great strain,
may sometimes feel that they’re insane.
For they may lack ability
to cope with instability.
It becomes self evident
that we become less confident.
This sets up a nervous strain
that can cause an emotional pain.
Many things may bring strain on,
like our sad loss when things are gone.
Or when we feel that we’ve been used,
trampled on or been abused.
We start to feel the strain and tire,
when things we try in life backfire.
Then again, strain takes a leap
at times when we don’t get much sleep.
When we overstep the mark,
things can seem both bleak and stark,
and sometimes we will designate
the pain of strain to luck or fate.
Yet some know how to pass the buck,
and in this way they make their luck.
They don’t carry their own yolk
but shift the strain to other folk.
