Another day at work

I’m running, I’m panting,
I’ve deadlines to meet.

I’m sweating, I’m fretting,
I’m rushed off my feet.

My voice is shaky,
My heart is pumping;
Must stay focused,
But, my mind is jumping.

I propose a plan;
The nerves are churning.
So many stare,
My body is burning.

I don’t understand
What it is I say,
But I just talk the talk,
Going along with it anyway.

I sign the deal.
What does it mean?
I can’t say I feel
Emotions or anything?

The work is so lifeless,
My soul is destroyed.
I do this for money,
Not for the joy.

Until I find meaning,
I’m stuck here in this,
With the life sucked out of me
Wondering what I have missed.
