Going To Work

Going to work is a trip everyday. I feel like a robot already programed. When I wake up in the morning I take a quick shower to wake me up. I grab a cup of coffee and run out to my car. I have to beat the traffic and that's no fun, when everyone else is doing the same. Sooner or later i get stuck. Some fool had an accident it wasn't my fault, but I get stuck just the same. After a while we start to move on, then it starts to go smooth, until we start to pick up speed , then everything is a mess. It is not easy to be on the freeway. If you go too slow, you can get hit from behind. If you go too fast you will get a ticket. What is a working person suppose to do? I just go along with the flow and pray that I get out in one piece. I soon see my exit and out I go. I get to my job, by now I need another cup of coffee. If no one has made it I make it myself. After the coffee I am awake and start my work day. Like a Zombie i do my chores, until it's time to go home. I feel good I've made my day. life is not easy, but some of us have to work, for a paycheck that's not even enough. I thank God for giving me this job, otherwise I wouldn't be going to work everyday. Going to work is a trip, but it pays for the food at the end of the week. God bless America and Thank God that we are free...

    Lucilla Everyone that reads this can relate to at least one thing in it. You took us on a journey of everyday life with your imagery, descriptions and feelings. Nice job

    Lucy, Once again, we find ourselves trapped in the Holiday Season. And, hear I am stopping by to say Hi and to wish you a Merry Christmas once again sincerely from my heart. Loving each moment I found comforting here on the soup. Thank you for any comment or support you have offered now or in the past. Love always & forever ~ PD

    well, at least you ended this on a good note. Yes, despite our inconveniences, we still have things pretty good in our country. Where do you live? I am SO glad Utah traffic is not this bad.

    This is LOVELY Lucilla! The way you've started with the descriptions and the way the poem turns to show your gratitude - very nice!

    I can relate. except for the commute. I live about 3 minutes from work. But, I owe, I owe, so it's off to work I go........maybe you can come up with the words to finish this jingle. Have a great week and a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    A tale many can relate to. Going to work is not fun for the majority of people but it does pay the bills. Poetry is great but almost everyone has to look for other sources of income. Finally NYC is getting it together after the storm. Love & Peace Matthew Anish
