Labor

We go through it to wind up here
then find out straight away
it's something we must constantly perform
for how else will we persevere
against the coming gray
from every future unpredicted storm

and sometimes though the days be long
when pain assails our backs
we find a way of finishing the task
it's not so much about being strong
but staving off attacks
of shadows that would steal our stints to bask.

I'm glad I have a full time job - I think I'd be really bored and unhealthy if I didn't! :)

Yes working is a blessing in many ways, it's the people we work for that make it otherwise.
