Jane Frye

Passionate but exploited 

Engaged but exhausted 

Dedicated but depleted 

Focused but drained 

Inspired but shackled

    Sounds like writer's block. But you pulled through just fine. ; )

  • Doggerel Dave

    First and last lines - grave concern.
    Middle three - rest up.

  • Jane Frye

    Yep, just me dusting off my violin to play at my own pity party. But writing it out loud made me feel better. 🙂

    • Doggerel Dave

      You didn't do too badly - you kept very much in tune. 😊

      • Jane Frye

        Lol I guess the pity party started because I was out of tune. 🙂

        Those shackles are now released through your words Jane.

          I think you are right, Andy. And happy belated birthday.

          It can get like that sometimes but giving up clearly isnt in the cards so i will see this is a positive poem from a caring soul

            I do love the people I work with, and giving up on them has never been an option. Thank you SC.

            an Artisan's plight: within Modernity's, reality
            how sobering
            your insightful commentary, captures
            struggles of those, integrity impassioned
            with fervent intent, to actualise
            their hopes and dreams
            but finding their path's: forever blockaded
            by society's crude mechanisms
            of bottom line profiteering, ideology
            and glutinous greed's, narcistic sycophancy...
            (A profound write, dear poet)

              Wow - Right on the mark. The government signs my paycheck, and getting anything done requires a ton of frustrating paperwork.
