The End of a Busy Day

Updated on May 20, 2018

How Soon We Move On

Lets not forget

We put in the time and the energy

Doesn't it count for something

A day of work

On our feet

Lifting and bending when necessary

Our bodies absorb the impact

A sore shoulder blade and a stiff back

How lucky am I to have only two things aching me

It wasn't long before I was so glad to be home

My body may have been put through the ringer

It is all over now

As I hop into a piping hot shower

The heat so intense but so worth it

Reaching so many places at once

My tired muscles started feeling better

As I scrubbed my body from head to toe

Then again because it felt so good

I didn't want to leave the shower

I rub my feet back and forth on the prickly bath mat

Massaging my tired feet

What a wonderful feeling it is

The steam in my bathroom

Separates me from the rest of the world

Only to feel good again

After a good night sleep

I will be ready to tackle the world

Doing my bit

Working and contributing my own unique part

To make today better than the one before

      Chitrangada Sharan So many times I wake up and before long go to work. The day moves at a rate of speed so fast that the week is over before I know it. The weeks add up and years stack high like a pile of pancakes one on top of the other. Each enjoyed but hidden with all that syrup. Then as interesting as it is soon we are hungry again. Work is a cycle as soon as we get paid we are right back at it. Thank you for sharing. I love your tips. No time for negative thoughts is the right way to go. Then we are so excited when things are going well. I sleep good at night knowing and loving the feeling of a job well done. Have a fantastic day.

      Great poem, and so relatable!

      Life is like that- always keeps us on the move. I like to keep myself always busy or engaged in some work or the other. This is a good way to avoid negative thoughts. It gives a sense of satisfaction, when we are able to achieve our little goals of the day, and it definitely helps us to sleep peacefully.

      You expressed so well. Thanks for sharing!

      Hey, talking about moving on. My house got sold and the final papers come through on June 15. Then I am free as the wind and ready to head north, south, east or west. I think I am going to wind up in Daytona Beach, Florida but just asking any suggestions like head west woman or something lol. Hope you have a great new week.

      Michael-Milec Each day is so special. Bringing out the joy of work and the harmony of my body performing at it's peak. Years of action and finding new ways of doing the same thing. Thank you so much for being the first to comment and share your insightful thoughts. Have a great night.

      Not one act would be able to separate a willing soul to fulfill every desire for good deeds. The motivation constantly inspires you. Definitely important is that the body is fully conditioned by the visible implementation of the actions born in our heart to achieve maximum success.
