In line we jostle
in green-eyed hustle,
striving for the next rung –
a discontented crowd
with feelings stored in a cloud.
Is this life?
This constant strife?
Let’s step down
onto solid ground.
And sit awhile,
resetting the dial
to another space –
a peaceful penury
all the richer if you’re with me.

Constructive criticisms are super welcome! Personal attacks won't be published, though, coz they won't help anyone grow as an artist!
