The Job I Used To Love


My days are getting shorter and shorter
my stress is getting bigger and bigger
I feel so tired, I wanna go home and sleep till tomorrow
when I finally do get bed at night, all i can think is what I'll face tomorrow

I used love my job, I still do,
but lately its taken so much out of me that I barely work anymore.
I wish I could go back to old days where I was just a student.
where I was still learning, preparing for beloved job.

And this time I will make sure I prepare harder
So I can handle the stress better.
And tomorrow will be just another day
And today will never come back.

    this is the truth of life...when we were in our school days, we used to feel when we shall grow big and go for a job like our parents....but the reality is realised only wen we reach that stage...since there is no Ctrl+Z in life, we have to move on for a better tomorrow and a best present.
    A gud and realistic write! (Report) Reply

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
