Pressure

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
To much pressure; too much distrust
Too much fear and anxiety
Too much stress in society
Too much judgement; too much hate
Too much emphasis on being first rate
Too much pushing; too much; too far
Too much weight put on A stars
Ashes to ashes; dust to dust
Too little; too late as the burnout combusts

Exam Nerves

If you could see my nerves
You’d see they were frayed
All jiggling and jangling
On this exam day
But then in an instance
I stop and I think
Why let such reaction
Put life on the brink
And breathe in all deeply
Smile broad and smile wide
And know that the best
Is already inside
In knots of my memory
In boxes and stores
So all I need now
Is a test that ensures
Those banks are tapped quickly
To leak out the stuff
I’ve learnt and remembered
And that’s good enough!
