Pressure

Pressure

.

We are under pressure

To run the race of life

The here and now comes first

No more living in the past

Take a step back and look

At today: “life in the fast lane”

Actors in masks doing what is asked

Superficiality has no bounds

Insanity reigns in this melee

As all and sundry join the fray

Feelings smothered, masked

As we try to portray the ideals

Thrust on us by those in the know

And we accept without a word

Without a sign of a struggle

Because we all want to be someone else

And pretence leaves emptiness.
