Beach Life

I work to pay the bills, and more
At home, I’m busy doing chores
Serenity seems out of reach
I need a life down at the beach!

Where I can live on “island time”
Play or rest – the choice all mine
Where I can relax, clear my head
With a palm tree overhead.

Sand underfoot, wind in my hair
Never a worry, never a care
Swim, surf, splash all day
The perfect life, I would say!

Dear readers – What would your dream life be? Let me know!

Practicality vs. Passion

Dear reader, what am I to do?
Be practical? Or follow my passion?
I’ve done some self-discovery
(After all, it’s quite the fashion).

Oh, giving up the day job
Would be a dream come true
To write what I like (and get paid)
Well, that’s what I’d love to do!

Till a big break comes along
Sadly, a hobby this must stay
(I do need the reassurance
Of receiving regular pay!).

But who out there has done it?
Taken a leap, despite the doubt?
Feel free to share your wisdom
Tell me, how’s it working out?

A Work Mother

‘Twas my birthday recently
The big 5-0 is drawing near
I’m an “oldie” where I work
That much is very clear!

My colleagues are barely 20
(You can do the sums…)
Just the other day, they said
“You could be our Mum!”

I hope I can be useful, and
Make them feel inspired
I just wish I had their energy
Instead of feeling tired!

A Job at Macca’s (McDonald’s)

Had a part-time job at Macca’s
Back when I was at uni
The pay was barely crackers
(No, really, it was puny!)

We couldn’t just loaf about
Chilling and having fun
We always got reminded
There was cleaning to be done.

“If there’s time to lean, there’s time to clean”.

Being polite to customers
Was sometimes a real drain
Having to suggestive sell?
Oh boy, that was a pain.

“Would you like fries with that?”

But… I received good training
In customer service, with a smile
Looking back, my 3 years there
Were certainly worthwhile.

My pay sure came in handy
For shopping (and going out)
And there were some fun times
That we could laugh about.

Perhaps I could go back there
Earn a little cash, but then…
There’s no way I would ever
Wear that uniform again!
