Ohhh…… Man: Superannuation

Me the man was so happy to work, with honor and pride as manager;
Things are bountiful when it moved smoother; pleased people served as scrounger.
Felt the spirit of work as unity; made to achieve the goal with craving,
Ceaselessly working with strongest frames that quell the starving;
A man’s pride as manager, bringing him to think high,
Humble spirit vanished to obtain the honour.

When pride comes, treating with disgrace; acting with everything that is in my hand;
Me my job as manager, been a routine for years,
Forced me to neglect my family, scenes of cheers;
Enjoy the top cadre job with competitive mind;
Oh. ME, man with regrets; made others to sob so long, so unkind,
I myself, bestowing my tension, rebuke to my subordinate and family with persuasion;
Made me a human with above normal blood pressure.

The respect received as manager; slowly vanishing on my superannuation,
Taking a pause; I myself realise, my post as manager for time being;
Oh. ME, I completely forgot that I am finally, a human being.

    One who loves her job can not sometimes love her family. Ultimately the company for which one works forgets him after some time.It is the Family and friends who must be the priority
    Your article/poem is worth reading.
