half full

My work has taken a lot out of me.
It has taken a lot of life
Out of me, really.
In return I got a gift certificate to a book store.

So my work has given me a book of poetry
Recommended by a friend.

My work has given me poetry that changed me
And 44 cents in change.

That was beautifully written.
something, gives you nothing, gives you something. And that's the way life goes.

Thanks Dayli - that is the way life goes and goes, I guess until it goes no more.
