You may work as a bartender during the night.
During daylight you work hard at your company.
You may be a big partner or just a peon
But no matter how important the echelon
While you are doing more than one thing, you’re not free
To create for yourself a future that is bright.
Companies have their interests and special needs
Independent of those of each one who works there.
Typically, they’re not in sync, and it can be hard
To maintain your alignment. Indeed, you are barred
From the bounty that’s due you. So you must take care
That you don’t start the planting of negative seeds.
Now, let’s say it’s your baby. It’s all up to you
To make sure that its startup goes very smoothly.
Your alignment with what you do during the day
Harmonizes with passion in every which way
With your life dream magnificent. Then you are free
To make that big decision. It’s what you must do.
When the needs of the company outweigh your drive
And demand all of your attention, then it’s time
To stop hedging your bets, if you feel confident.
But if not, then don’t bet because you will resent
Every subsequent failure. Failure’s not a crime!
Sometimes that’s what is needed for business to thrive.
