Sitting in the traffic on our way
to where we’ll spend the rest of our day,
(trapped inside while the sun is shining
instead of on the balcony reclining,
happily working at our own pace
away from the office race)
we reflect upon our hectic life
feeling like we can barely strife.
Why have we so far from nature strolled
all being shaped in the same old mould
made to believe that this is the norm
the only shelter from the storm?
Where do our minds work the best
if not when the least stressed?
The ideas come pouring in
while comfortable in our skin
concentrating the best we can
without distractions of a rigid plan.
Maybe we need to rethink it all
as many have had a close call
their precious health taken away
keeping their needs and feelings a bay
trying to cope with all the demands
struggling with a leash on their hands.
What we need is more freedom at work
rejecting the old office clerk
controlling our own time and space
saving our health and grace!
The workplace will gain as well
as productivity numbers tell
more freedom means better health
a basis for producing wealth….
