no way to live

A life lived in service of another

one, undeserving of such devotion

one, that doesn’t even see it

one, who professes to think so highly

one, who still has no clue

and how insulting is that from the

one, who is supposed to know you better than anyone else

You ask, How it is that you now find yourself

knee deep and questioning, yet again?

It is simple really

you’ve lived your life in service of another

undeserving of such devotion

  1. It is a difficult task – one that found me walking away – twice.

  2. People weren’t meant to serve, they were meant to live and have fun. To share and co-create. Service can sometimes be another word for slavery.
