Its almost the holidays

Cold weather and joy

But first comes the busy days

Tests start to annoy

A concert or three

A show just for fun

Busy as a bee

Overwhelmed and done

Stressed for good it seems

Holidays are to relax

But I’m ripping at the seams

I’m the glass that cracks

Every day that passes

Life is supposed to get easier

They all go slow as molasses

Sometimes each day is a meteor

But what’s life without activity?

In the end, I’m glad it’s here, no matter how busy the holiday cheer

The author's comments:

This poem is about the stress of the 3 weeks before the holiday breaks come, what I like to refer to as the Pre-Holiday Season. I've always heard poems turn out best if they are about real life so I gave that concept a try.
