This journey belongs to us and yet,
We relinquish handfuls of essence,
And toil to feel present.
Eagerly bending to the will of others,
To feed our own ego, for financial gain,
To keep in good stead,
And in good conscience remain!
The balance of power cries out within,
Guilt is consuming, don’t step out of line!
Barely time left to feed heart and brain,
And fulfill our own wanting,
In misery remain?
