Life was a bit overwhelming today,
In quite a subtle and normal way,
I didn’t tick off many things from my list,
But the sun melting into the sea, I witnessed.
I thought of more cons to applying for that job,
It would take all my freedom, and be a hard slog,
It wouldn’t lead to anything, it’s basically pointless…
…except I could save for that road-trip at last.
See this is my problem, it’s a catch 22,
A full-time job earns enough for what I want to do,
But it would take all my time, my non-refundable time,
30 days holiday out of 260’s a crime.
I didn’t get any further with my tax return,
But the sea was so calm I tried skipping stones,
I feel like I didn’t do anything ‘productive’,
But today I allowed myself just. To. Live.
