Pressure Cooker
20 April, 2007
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The internal pressure cooker is ready to explode
No real reason, my emotions are on overload
Every little thing seems to effect me personally
I wonder if there is a reason to start to worry

I can't seem to let go of the little things
The stress of everyday life and the frustration if brings
Usually it rolls off me like rain on a windshield
I just close my mouth, bite my tongue and keep it concealed

But I want to shout out telling people what I really think
I know something is wrong, somethings is out of sync
I'm usually easy going, nothing gets to me
But now it seems I'm on some sort of an anger spree

I hope it blows over soon before I say something I'll regret
I hate feeling this way, continually feeling upset
What ever is causing it I want it to stop
This feeling better end before the pressure cooker blows it's top
