I need to take a break

Sometimes I get weary
Sometimes I am sore
But at the end of some days
I know I need more

I get up too early
To go to my work
I find myself up late
Unless duties I shirk

We think the world won't go
Unless we're there to turn
But sometimes I'd like to take
A match and my schedule burn

The world will continue
It will stand the test
If I prop my feet up
And take a needed rest

And this is for the rest of you
If working makes you hazy
Take a moment, smell the coffee
Don't let things drive you crazy

They will never make a song
Of the words of this post
Just sit down and take a break
Before you become a ghost

Thank you Michelle Dawn. I guess when it's not for a creative writing class in high school, it flows a little easier.

THis one would make great song lyrics, Cliff. I hear something sort of blues-y.
