A capricious and often brutal temptress
She is frail, with no strength of her own.
Everyone ignores her, and don’t take her into account,
While her parasitic nature, hides behind a vulnerable exterior
She tiptoes into your life, while you are running behind your dreams, and suddenly takes over,
Nobody believes they are susceptible, but she can make the mightest of them bow
She toys with young and old, toddlers and kids,
She spares no one, she loves no one.
Such is her grip on life that
She lives a veiled existence yet people dread talking about her.
If undetected, she gets her friends depression and anxiety
Together they slowly choke the life out of your well wishers- joy, drive, inspiration.
By then, it’s too late, all you can do is watch in helplessness or list help and fight.
Yet many are ashamed to agree that they are in her cluthes
And prefer a silent death over a simple solution
It is better to talk and than be sorry.

Word power and your way of expression. Lovely!
Beautifully written. It’s hard to define stress and harder to explain what it does to an individual. People don’t understand the long term damage done by stress, and end up never talking about it.
Keep writing, looking forward to read more such good articles.
