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. My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie (And so it goes…) and PoetryPalette (Poetry, a seasonal state of mind), where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing. I have authored Seasoned Delights, A Haiku Collection and Mama, me and Mother Nature. I am also a published author on Spillwords.
