The Time Has Come

Eyes flutter to the morning rays,
And you realize today’s the day.
The unexpected vacay is now over,
And it’s time to slog again.

 
The same old boring nine to five,
Small chats and faking smiles.
The situation isn’t even under control,
And you don’t feel safe at all.

 
Those judging eyes, the targets to meet,
The virus lingering, un-sanitized,
Nothing about today is good,
Damn! The fucking good mornings.

 
The day hasn’t even started,
And you already dread it.
Oh God! Can you just end this?
Skip to Friday already!!

 
And there’s nothing I can say,
To make your day better.
But I truly hope,
You have a good one.

Dedicated to every single one of you going back to work today.

        I’m an advertising copywriter by profession. And while SEO is important and bla bla … I seriously hate writing SEO articles. 😂😂😂 But I do it. I really gotta sit and read your blog properly… 😬😬😬 That’s why, I followed you. But I hardly read it properly. Really really need to get a grip on my concentration span, cause you really have some awesome stuff. The title itself says that has got so much information I need. But I’m plain lazy. 😂😂😂 I prefer writing jingles and billboard stuff… 😜

        Jingles and billboard stuff is a lot of fun to work on especially since you have to be original and different per definition. I appreciate you following me and having the opportunity to get to know you a little better. Thanks for taking the time to respond to all of my questions, if there is ever anything I can do for me you don’t be shy you know where to find me 😉

        Wow TV commercials.. that sounds like an awful lot of fun!! Do you have any videos on youtube in which you appear or to which you have contributed? And you are a freelance copy- and content writer too!! We might be able to rub each others back one day 😉

  5. May all the people in that situation find a way out of it! :).

    It comes from our lives being divorced from our true human values. Finding a way back to those is the answer. 💙
