Many years gone by…
Pleasures put on hold
As duty called…
But childhood pursuits
Lost appeal over time
And moments of pleasure
Captured in spite of myself
Weren’t enough to bring
More than momentary smiles
Instant gratification gets bad raps
Workaholics glorified…
Nose to the grindstone?
In my opinion, a load of bull!
Can I return to GO?
A balance of industry and joy?
I remember what it felt like
Before my days became
Overfilled with responsibility
And too often bereft of joy
