frustration’s a funny thing

it starts off small

barely noticeable

like a tickle in the back of your throat

after a while

it chips away

at the positive exterior

poking its way into your life

making itself known

calling out to be tended to

to be noticed

until you can no longer

ignore it

then what was once a tickle

is a full blown cough

unable to be disregarded

once it’s there

in your face

you’ve got to deal with it

one way or another

you can cry

or pout

or shout

or discuss

or retreat

or take action

it’s up to you

but it must be dealt with

this frustration that’s

built up inside of you
