My Career

How can I describe my Real Estate career?
Abandon all hope ye who enter here!
Even though Real Estate is my employ
For it, I have no passion and not much joy.
This vocation has made me smart
But for this business, I have no heart
Every day is a daily grind
Buyers and Sellers, I have to find
Real Estate takes almost all my time
Almost sell your soul just to make a dime.
The pain never ends
Being daily betrayed by so called friends.
Some days this job feels like being in Hell!
Sell Sell Sell Sell Sell!
When asked about starting a real estate career and plan
I say “Run! Get out while you still can”
For forty years my life has been such..
Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

Well, you got a chuckle out of me! I also work in Real Estate... er... um... I did. I didn't have much of a heart for it and suffering through a commission-only income through the dreadfully slow and devastating year of 2006 didn't keep me around. Now I'm in Property Management. I suppose I can't truly get away either.

Here and there, in this poem you find a little from Dante. You can follow him a little again. 'At last we come to see the stars again'
