CAUGHT BETWEEN TWO WORLDS

Caught between two worlds

seeking sanctuary

longing to stay home

where mind and heart roam

free to relax and enjoy

the meaningful things of life.

 

The bleak repetitiveness of work

chained to a realm of unbending rules

doing what I must do

fills me with dread. . .

Unhappy, stressed, strained

battling constant aches and pains,

I’m unbearably smothered

by petty rules and regulations.

 

Staying at home – with only myself to please

there’s no ever-present boss to appease.

This pleasant, peaceful place

is uniquely my space

here imagination and inspiration thrive

the lighter, brighter side shines.

I’m delightfully free!
