Languishing in the dark
With no plans afoot to embark
On a journey that lends stability
Perhaps, the lacuna is in my ability

Shifting sands of the economy
Threaten my existence to the brink of ignominy
By putting a lid on an ever so moderate livelihood
That for some years now, on a shaky ground stood

Diligence and earnestness are virtues bygone,
In an era of glorious technological dawn
Where analytics form an indispensable core
To measure your competency score

While the pursuit of quality is deemed so vain
Churning volume, merits recognition and, rewards attain
Cutting corners has robbed work ethic of its sheen
Employees these days are reduced to a machine

Pressures of survival, despite efforts, sustained
Led to exasperation and fears ingrained
Hounding did, at last, shatter the zeal,
Egging me on to break free, for once not kneel.

My instincts have charted a course astute,
Where the heart lies, moreover aptitude does suit
Call to action is the need of the hour,
To fulfil the dream of self-reliance that I harbour.
