Labor Day Reflections

With gratitude for work I love

This Labor Day
I’m grateful
I get paid
for what I do.
And what I do
means doing
what I love.
When what needs done
aligns itself
with what
you long to do,
what some call work
to you is hand-in-glove.

It is a gift
if what you do
for income
brings you joy.
It’s just a job
if you despise
your work.
If that’s the case
I hope you have
a hobby
(maybe two)
since without joy
you’ll likely go berserk.
