Draining Deadlines


Created by those in charge with no thought to the induced stress.


Always set within short spaces of time.

They drain a person

Squeezing out every drop of joy, patience, and energy.


Long minutes turning into hours

Spent in front of the computer

Creating a band across your forehead and a burning in your eyes.


A heartfelt sigh when completed.

The rejuvenation begins –

Until the next looms on the horizon.

What do you feel about deadlines?
