Reasons we Plan

To avoid failing
To avoid wasting
To avoid faulting
To avoid falling
To avoid pressure

Reasons we Vent

Pressure Off
Relaxes Us
Expressions Hurt
We keep our head
All need it
Or turn to killers
And those who don't
Make good ones

Reasons we Panic

If only we knew
And had sight
If we could perceive
And have no doubt
Believing what we want
Is ours without the obstacles
That choke us at night
Preventing us from slumber
Then we would not panic

Reasons we Celebrate

For succeeding
We celebrate
For achievements
We celebrate
For promotions
We celebrate
For marrying
We celebrate
For children
We celebrate
For all
We celebrate

Reasons we Compromise

Never easy
This life so daring
Challenging for all
Both weak and strong
Need to struggle to survive
Then comes situations
Where we make decisions
That change us forever
Decisions we'd never take
But for life's cruelty
We compromise
To live to regret
Or rejoice
That is life

Reasons we Succeed

A goal ahead
Lies in the head
A purpose to pursue
When all seems bleak and unsure
The journey so unending
Becomes the story so unchanging
But the goal
Becomes the gold
When achieved
And well received

Reasons we Pretend

Living for others
Abandon our cares
Aiming to fit in
Going against beliefs
Seeking approval of others
We ought to please ourselves
Be ourselves
And live for us
