Squeezes you with the strength of a python.
Pushing the air from your very lungs,
listening to your bones crack from under the weight,
but you fight on because that’s all you can do,
yet its grip gets tighter and you want to scream
with the hope that the noise would scare it away,
but it pays you no mind and keeps going
with no care for your condition or circumstances
that you may have had to face prior to this,
but you can’t give up and cave in to the pressure
as you are the chosen and have been tested before.
The pressures of life can never crush you
as long as you continue to fight, with the will to live.
