    Life, Death, and Rebirth (Worker's Song) - POTM Jan 08

    Day

    I am working here
    It brings great joy to my life
    I am not alone

    Others are like me
    They like it as I do too
    I am not alone

    I'm here 'till sunset
    I really like work this much
    I am not alone


    Night


    As I lay here now
    I'm happy just like always
    I am not alone

    Comfortably in sleep
    I see my work in my dreams
    I am not alone

    I know next morning
    I will do good work again
    I am not alone

    Dawn

    I feel.....this strange sensation, all is so surreal
    I fall off my bed and hit the floor, feeling dense as steel.

    I begin to not feel happy, I don't even know how.
    I feel sadness taking hold, I don't even know how.

    I start to feel resentment...
    Even hate....
    For my boss,
    My most glorious boss.

    I can't explain the loathing, as if I was
    possessed.
    But in the end, I knew should have always hated him so. I was being
    repressed.

    I realized soon, that I was their little worker bee
    Working for my queen
    Though this queen was nothing to be seen
    Just another greedy pig

    I liked to work hard
    But now it brings me no joy
    I am so alone


    Yes, believe it or not, the last part of this poem had meaning to its disjointed glory. Any criticism and suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

    I love it! I hope that you will find happiness to wash away the feelings you feel when you come from work.

    Thanks for your comment, but the poem wasn't only about work as we know it.

    It was sort of an attack on communism and the restrictions it poses to its people under its control.
