A vacation is hard for work..

We all have been sold this myth somehow

That taking a vacation would allow

Us to refresh, rejuvenate and return

With renewed vigor, eager to burn

Recharged energy at the workplace

Challenges we would be raring to face


This is as far from the truth as can be

After coming back from vacation, at least for me

I return physically but my mind does not

Accompany me back, it is lost in thoughts

Of paradise that I have left behind

When I return to my desk I find

That I dislike my job more than ever

If only I could have come back never

To my boring workplace, I would be

A much happier version of me..

The contrast between work and vacation

Widens immeasurably in my estimation

I want to get away from work once more

With greater urgency than I did before


It takes a few days for the intoxication

Brought about by my amazing vacation

To get out of my system, until then I drag my feet

To complete small tasks at work seems a major feat

Post-vacation instead of being an energizer bunny

I trudge through work like an overfed zombie…

  1. Playing catch-up after a vacation was the worst. Everyone who said, “Have fun! We’ll take care of things while you’re gone”…well, that never quite happened.
