That is life's saving grace,
When you're feeling you can't take anymore,
You can't keep up the pace,
That your body will fail under the weight,
If you find no release,
That if you let it crush you, that's the end,
You'll fall to the level of lazy beasts,
Like you've been born again with no future,
Simply awaiting death.
What? You've never experienced such stress?
Probably for the best,
No person should,
E'en though most people do,
There's a structure we've built that must stay up,
Despite what keeping it up does to you.
