Today's challenge was to write a poem about a job.
A decade ago I took a
'get me through college' job
It was a good job
Secure, like a good blanket
A decade later
I'm still there
Granted, the company has
Made a 'career man' out of me
But how much longer can I sustain it?
When it doesn't seem to pay the bills
Doesn't offer the promise it once did
Can I turn away now?
Leave it all behind?
What exactly would I be leaving again?
I think I've outgrown my security blanket.
