The frequent sigh from the cubicle nearby is a telling sign they believed a lie. They took the test and followed the rest but the boss has now become a pest.
The purpose inside has never been tried so now it’s their life that they bide.
The frequent breath from within their chest is the soul’s dying request.
“Take a leap of faith, you’re far too great, to subside in this current state!”
So listen close to that quiet host, the gasp from the inward ghost.
It’s the warning to you that you must start anew and do the thing you’re meant to do.
Time moves fast. Just look at your past.
Hurry! for one day that sigh will be your last.
