When the pressure’s mounting up
Remember to review life’s cup
It overflows or runs clean dry
And only you can guess at why

Life can be hard at times, it’s true
It doesn’t matter where or who
So complex is this world we’re in
We could but guess where to begin

Take time then, look around awhile
Perhaps change your pattern, or your style
No prizes for the lost and weak
But help them find the things they seek

A truly helpful soul is rare
Most ones you’ll meet can only stare
But now and then true friends are there
Reminding you that still they care

So journey onward through the rain
It’s time to make your stand again
And as for me, I’m just like you
Let’s hope this pressure drives us through
