Someone said “ work is slavery”
I nod in full admiration
It won’t fill my box of jewelry,
Require my full attention,
Though the prize alluring salary.

Work curtails one’s freedom,
Glued to a place when you step one,
Leave your home at start of dawn,
Entering another world of fund,
For family’s survival at glance.

Slavery is work, a designed of artwork,
A routinary field of office book,
Bundy clock is the human’s look,
Will tell if you’re at your nook,
Work is really a slavery with bankbook.

    well, work can be considered a slavery but it can help us to improve our life & to help our family to survive & to get all our needs easily.
    this poem makes me push harder to finish my studies and encourages me to work sincerely.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
