Unwind and Be Free

poetry, humor, Friday, Modern PhilosopherWe mustn’t

Allow our minds

To submit

To the

Stressful thoughts

That hold them

Hostage all week

As we



The work day.


In the Rat Race

Might be

A requirement

In order

To keep

Food on

The table,

And a roof


Our heads,

But a mind

Is a terrible


To feed to

The Stress Monster.

So unwind

And be free.

The weekend

Has arrived!

Leave behind,

Locked away

In a desk drawer,

The thoughts

That stain

Your brain,


Your will,

And crush

Your soul.

Once the


Has offered



To Freedom,

Do not

Look back,

Flush your mind

Of anything


To your job.

If you’re not

Getting paid,

Don’t waste

A brain cell

On work.


And be free!

The weekend

Is here.

Don’t you dare

Even think

About Monday!

    Yes, Austin, I am unwinding big time, my friend, with the extra special thought that I have all next week off for a staycation to continue the Big Relax From Work as well.

    Those lines are fire!! I’ll keep these in mind as I sleepwalk through my last few workdays! I’m actually quitting my job because that place is a soul sucker. Thanks so much for this.
