The corporate world beckoned me with propitious propositions
with a cache of dreams, wrapped with sincere efforts
I embarked on the journey in earnest pursuit,
the promise of a bright future, calling out loud.
With time, the grooves of stress deepened
harried life style became a way of life
work life balance, was on a precarious edge
frustrated sighs detonated to anguished screams.
Reflecting on the aftermath of an emotional detritus
I collected the scattered fragments of myself.
Infused with a renewed vigor to start afresh,
I tread on the road less traveled, with a leap of faith!
