Morning Blues

humor, musings

“You get up early in the morning and you work all day. That is the only secret.”

Philip Glass

I love my profession, in which pride I take

I like my job, feel grateful for the money I make

Then what is the problem, you might wonder

When I say mornings make me want to crawl under

The covers and snooze in blissful oblivion

In the morning it is hard to find a reason

To get up, get dressed and endure the commute

To my workplace, this idea does not seem to suit

My constitution, even though you might say

If I love my job, I should look forward to each work day

 

I cannot resolve this intriguing conundrum

That though my work is far from being humdrum

Every morning a holiday is on this wish-list of mine

When I wake up, I have  a strong urge to whine

About working so hard when people all around

Are enjoying vacation, their stress unwound

To get through my morning routine timely I struggle

From the parking lot to my desk, my feet I shuffle

 

Once inside my workplace, adequately caffeinated

Positive energy reenters, leaves me rejuvenated

I get galvanized into activity, and am immersed

In work, with efficiency I am well-versed

Gradually my love for work is restored

I am so engrossed that I am never bored

When I leave at the end of the day, I want to return

The next morning, ending my homely sojourn

But the time spent at home just draws me away

From work, and it’s difficult to wake up next day!
