Leave work… at work

To cross every T and dot every I

Is my goal for each day, and I try

My best to leave that pesky inbox

Of my work tasks empty, that’s my detox

For each day- so that when I leave

My workplace, I am able to cleave

My life into two separate domains-

Work and home- never shall meet the twain

There is something cathartic, I find

Something that energizes my mind

When I see an empty inbox before me

Completing work on time simply sets me free


If I leave tasks pending for the next day

I find that the baggage tends to stay

With me even at home, robbing me

Of mindful moments I can spend with my family

I know the question arises here

Do I stay late at work to adhere

To my desire of achieving completion each day

Yes, I do sometimes, yet I must say

In the grand scheme of things I save time

Because I work when my productivity is prime


I have come a step closer to achieve

The elusive work-life balance, I believe!
