Overworked

adult-1868015_960_720

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Is obsolete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
