A poem a day keeps the cobwebs off my keyboard.

Pressure

Pressure
it's what makes a diamond
from a lump of coal
Pressure
it purifies a man’s designs
and shines them up like gold
Pressure
takes these words from me
and through them shares my soul
Pressure
it amplifies each tick and tock
until the deadline
Four o’clock.
