Grow up! (flash 55)

Grow up, feel the pain
of labouring in vain

Hear the ticking of the clock
growing faster, keen to mock

See the leaves fall from the tree
wondering how long spring will be

Believe that you just can't win
with your spirit lost within

Chase deadlines until your dead
where once you chased dreams instead

Hi Toadee,
I'm new to your blog, I got here by way of Snow Elf's list of 55ers. Nicely done.

Dearest Toad, you have had a rough week, yet it has inspired such a lovely thought provoking 55. Life never can stop to wait for those running behind to catch up...

take care,
--snow

Ah the futility of working for someone else. Why do we do it? Because we aren't one of 'the Haves.'
