Just Pay Me Enough

Just Pay Me Enough

I remember so vividly the day we met

It was my interview for the job but I felt the connect

The team was so good and the promises of growth, even better

I was on the moon when I got the appointment letter

 

I was full of zeal and energy

To show that passion and ambition, mine and yours were, in complete synergy

I worked hard to contribute the best I could

And you appreciated it all as a leader should

 

Together you had said we will grow

I agreed to your every word without beating a brow

The days were good, weeks better

I worked hard to keep up with your directives in words and letter

 

Time flew and together we grew

Your appreciation would make us happy, at times one and at times a few

There were opportunities from your peers and foes

But we were your team and they always would get our no’s

 

Time changed with the slump and slowdown

But we stayed with you agreeing not to bow down

There were no raises and there were no increments

But we never looked elsewhere and stuck by you through these predicaments

 

Then came the pandemic that made us all shiver

But my trust in you did not even once quiver

I thought we would see the times through together 

Grow out of it with our bonds yet stronger

Then came the news of redundancies and layoff

But it didn’t bother me as I thought I have the bonds of togetherness to show off 

Struck me like a blow that my name was on the list

I took it in my stride as I thought you would have tried everything against the tryst

 

How much money you want when you asked

I was taken aback was the bond of togetherness all masked

I am not greedy don’t want a fortune

But wish you could hold my hand till the times were more opportune

Can I put a value on the gone by time?

And forget my zeal, enthusiasm, hard work of years just over a chime?

I wish you well know your monies will come as once again you reach your prime

So just pay me enough to buy back that opportune time

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

I would love to hear from you
