Hanging on by a thread

There’s too much happening all at once
The constant chaos is getting to me
Things keep going wrong
I keep making mistakes
I’m mentally tired
Im physically drained.
I’ve been working nonstop,  no day off.
I’m at the end of my rope.
This isn’t what I expected.
I didn’t come here to struggle like this.
There has to be a tipping point.
Don’t know how much more of this I can take.

Faking it

image

 

They want me to pretend that all is well.
They want me to put on a show.
They don’t want to hear the truth.
They want me to earn my paycheck by telling lies.

I can’t sell something I don’t believe in.
I can’t fake my enthusiasm.
I can’t keep up this act for much longer.
I’m convinced I’m in the wrong profession.
It’s definitely time to move on.
