I remember the days when I enjoyed
Confident, with my experience,
figured yes I was earning my pay
Sometimes arriving to work early
Keen, to start my working day.
I’d think about and plan ahead
How I would accomplish important
Certain I’d be able to address the
Of people whose lives seemed in the
But then for some unknown reason
You felt you needed to take control,
Over time you made it difficult for
To achieve my working goals.
You stood over, and you yelled
And critised me too,
Your complaints, sabotage,
manipulation, jealousy and exclusion
Made me think what could I possibly
have done to you?
Nightmares and sleepless nights
Afraid to go to work,
I believed I was no longer capable
To do the job
I once loved to do.
No longer confident
Left with feelings of hopelessness,
You continued with your whispered
lies and bad behaviour
For a while my work life governed by
But today I want to tell you
I’m no longer a bumbling mental
Resilient, stronger, my confidence
I’m now back to working at my best.
So now I’m asking you stop your
Your malicious gossip, with
And leave my workmates and me
To do what we know best
