Her dreams of leisure

Quickly fade

As she’s overworked

And underpaid


This nine to five

Has got her beat

And her social life

Is obsolete


She often dreams

Of something more

Yet never finds

An open door


Upon her face

Anxiety shows

A life of chaos

Is all she knows


She prays her burdens

Will someday leave

For she hasn’t the time

To sit and grieve
