A Growing Problem

Work is like a weight in the ocean
That pulls you down ’til you sink.
When you’re struggling to keep your head above water,
How do you find time to think?

    A thought provoking question indeed! My work is more like a sword to the throat. How do you find time to do anything when your larynx is being carved forth like the meat of a fattened steer?

      I’d say that yours is an even harder question. My answer was to flee the sword and trade it for the weights – better to sink of my own volition than be led to slaughter. My hats off to you for having the courage to stand and face that blade.
