Panic Adds To Pressure


Do it now to allow.
And get up on your feet.

Taking command in hand,
Is not an easy task to embrace...
When under pressure.
And...
Doing that task to see it completed,
One has to be free...
Of negativity.

A road to travel and alone,
May start with doubts.
But a road to travel one condones,
To do alone more than allows...
Faith to do the doing to have it realized.
Faith uncompromised to recognize,
Frees a carried baggage on one's back.
To acknowledge panic adds to pressure.
And with a taking command in hand,
One consciously takes a stand...
To be removed from those traps.

Do it now to allow,
A taking of command.
Panic adds to pressure.
Take a stand.
Don't be the one who from it ran.

A road to travel and alone,
May start with doubts.
But a road to travel one condones,
To do alone more than allows...
Faith to do the doing to have it realized.
Faith uncompromised to recognize,
Frees a carried baggage on one's back.
To acknowledge panic adds to pressure.

Taking command in hand,
Is not an easy task to embrace...
When under pressure.
A road to travel and alone,
May start with doubts.
But a road to travel one condones,
To do alone more than allows...
Faith to do the doing to have it realized.

Do it now to allow.
Get with it don't forbid it.
A taking of command.
Panic adds to pressure.
Take a stand.
Don't be the one who from it ran.
