I am in a profession where I daily treat
People with hypertension and anxiety.
But that’s not what I want to do. I feel I’m stuck.
There is nothing about it that leaves me awestruck.
The universe must know that I’d rather be
Doing what I want so that my life is complete.
I must not beat up on myself. That is useless.
Must I learn that I need to meet people halfway?
The people that I work with are set in their ways.
Their path of least resist matches their mores.
It is just what it is now. Perhaps I could stay
Since there are no immediate signs of distress.
I know that my inner being knows where I am
In relationship to everything that I want.
It knows the path of least resistance to get there.
I’m fulfilled in my service. Indeed I do care
About people in general, and I can’t flaunt
My extravagant ego lest myself I damn.
It does not matter what I’m doing. It only
Matters how I am feeling when I’m doing it.
I can’t get to where I want to go by trying
To escape where I am. Only pain that will bring.
Change is in the big picture, but I must permit
Here and now to invigorate and excite me.
