Retired

I stayed out late until it was pitch dark,

I sat on the grass, reclining on the tree bark.

The noise of the city

Fading in the distance slowly.

I bask under the glow and beauty of the sunset,

I take in the view while listening to the House Sparrow’s duet.

I stretch my arms and legs, grateful for this moment

Looking forward to more days like this on my retirement.

The Sea Is My Home

I feel at ease and calm

The sea, it helps me be calm.

Time is slower there and all worries are washed away

Sitting on the beach soaking the salty air makes it the best day!

My toes dig deep on the sand

This place couldn’t be more grand.

I take a dip and swim all the stress away

This is quite a nice getaway.

Demand

Work hard as if there’s no tomorrow

But your life is sad, full of sorrow

You try and meet the demands

Take their every command

You feel like being in prison

You ask yourself why you do it, what’s the reason

So you stop and pause

And ask, what is your cause?

You then decided to break from their chains

Their demand isn’t worth your pains
