Vocation should emerge from the heart,
which may require us to depart
from social norms and expectations;
the crying eyes and speculations.

Life shouldn’t be about accolades and rank,
or how much wealth we have in the bank;
live with less counting and measure,
allow more ‘just for the pleasure’.

Escape the place of lack and lost,
that has you incessantly counting the cost
as the years slip into the mire
that swallows whole your born desire.

For it truly matters not,
how expansive your plot,
if the soil erodes your soul,
and leaves an unfulfilled hole.
