[A-Z Challenge] P as in Pressure

You are born
Into Me
My powers

I manifest
In myriad forms
Emotional and

Success is assured
For those
Who  handle me
With respect

Yet I am
A slippery customer
For I can creep
Silently in a burst

Keeping a cool
Is the only way
An unending vigil
Can keep me at bay

A huge self-belief
My only nemesis
For it shatters
What I build

But time - my ally
Either not enough
Or so much that
Wear you down

Strong shoulders
I like; for I can sit
Put; until time
Wears them down!

Then you also have the pressure to write every day for this wonderful A-Z challenge.  Somehow have managed it so far. Hope to be there till the end of the challenge!

    1. This was a very good piece on the role of pressure in our lives. I like that you personified it! Yes, keeping up with the A-Z posts, reading, and comments is a lot of PRESSURE, but it's fun to try! :-)

    2. Thanks Josie! Glad you liked it!
