Throwback Friday – Overworked – Eugenia


oh, the spiritless toil

blood, sweat, and tears

those task-ridden years

day after day after day

work life balance no way

how did I miss the call

life’s not one size fits all

why I’ve spilled enough ink

no copy/paste no lip sync

my vigor up and gone

it’s the same old song

signs signs everywhere signs

shut the noise in my mind

my ego weeps eternally

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.” — Sam Ewing
