Job Interview

Nervous,

It could all change

Life could become

Ever so strange

.

Can’t sleep

Can’t eat

What’s it doing to me?

I’m so stressed out

Is it to be?

.

That stress before

The work I put in

All that paperwork

Just to put in the bin

.

Research

Prepare 

Do everything I can

Tell myself stay calm

Stick to the plan

.

It’s just a job

I know 

It doesn’t change things

That uncertainty before

All the stress it brings

.

I won’t tell anyone

Not even my mum

Hearing no

Never been fun

.

Self confidence gone

Success ratio down

All these rejects

Make me frown

.

Approach it calm

All you can do

Take a deep breath

Have faith in you

.

Do I deserve this?

Is it finally a yes

Am I gonna get it?

After this

I’m gonna be a mess

.

Fate is gonna come knocking

One day

You will see

When you hear that yes

Your gonna be happy

Limbo, ahhhhhh!

I’m in limbo, frustration constantly

Knot in my stomach waiting impatiently

Awaiting the days just to trickle past

Feeling like a novel, feeling, well, alas

Annoyed, biting into my hands

Each meal I eat increasingly bland

Ahhhhhhh I want to scream would it help?

If I punch myself and make myself yelp?

Tell me please I need to know

Why this constant suffering, this woe?

Trying to read, play, sleep even clean

Lol the last time I did, the floor actually gleaned

Motivation zero, what is even the point?

Nothing will make it better, not even a joint

What will I do? What choice do I have?

Just bloody sit here and hope it will not last

To be harassed #metoo

.

You know what you need to do

If you want to succeed

Succumb to me

And my sexual greed

I will make you famous

Do what I ask

Fulfill my pleasures

That is your task

Look at you

So innocent and young

Just a little massage

Let’s have some fun

The world is such a disgusting place

That I will abuse

My place of money and power 

Until you will accuse

That is years down the line

I have all the time I need

You are nothing for the moment

I will make you bleed

Waiting for payday

.

Waiting for payday to come

Fifth of the month

Some breathing space

To change the pace

Thirty days to last

Pity it goes so fast

It’s already gone

The account overdrawn

What will we do?

Go without food?

Stumble on

Ooh what fun

To do it again

Not know when

Things could change?

Wouldn’t that be strange

Come on be real

This banana peel

Used to it by now

My daily scowl

Stress itching me

Bizarre feeling really

Day in day out

Feel like I wanna shout

What good would it do?

I may feel better, true

Ahhhhhhhhhhh that’ll do

That’s my point of view

Job rejection

.

Your not good enough, there is always better

Speak two languages, qualified, whatever

Mouth off at them, why am I not in ?

There’s lots of good applicants within

Three months of applying, three months of this

Rejection constant, the agencies are taking the piss

I won’t be beat, even though it’s getting me down

Ok maybe for the moment it’s making me frown

Just wondering how long it’s gonna be

Applying for jobs to get one acception to be free!

Rejection will not beat me!

Apply apply apply

Feels like I’m gonna die

It’s get me so very down

Every time It makes me frown

It’s over fifty applies now

One interview, negative, how?

I’m an immigrant, discriminated

I feel worthless, emasculated

Stuck in the same job, 6 years

Hier archie bringing me to tears

I’m qualified in the uk

It’s worthless here, just ok

Every email, NO, even one letter too

It all bemused me, rejection spews!

I just need one, I tell myself

I’ll even work for less, don’t care for wealth

I want my weekends, that’s all I need

Because my job refuses it, I have to pleed

They won’t give it to me, they do as they please

They want me to suffer, even if I have to bleed

I’ll do what ever I can, what ever it takes

To look after my family what ever my fate

You can do it!

I am looking, what am I looking for

Something to change, not like before

I am fed up with the norm, the status quo

This purgatory, I’m going to and fro

Nothing is ever new, it’s always the same

This job is getting to me, giving me pain

Late nights, no family life, doing in my brain

I’m so busy at work, too tired to complain

I’m trying so hard to attain something new

At the moment crappy sticks to me like glue

Rejections, no answers, days passing by

Times a wasting, it doesn’t help to cry

My girlfriend, my kids, I do this for you all

Luck has to visit me once, I refuse to fall

Say no all you want, I refuse to be beat

I’m a stubborn bastard, I don’t accept defeat

I will provide, I will always go all the way

It will change soon my life, it starts today

Bossy cow!

That’s it, I’ve had enough

This job has just gotten too much

My boss is a bitch, she’s breaking my balls

Hypocritical twat that certainly knows it all

Never bloody wrong, always fucking right

Doing my head in, we do nothing but fight

She says to me I have changed and have a nasty side

This comes from a snake, venomous with pride

When ever there is work to be done

She’s in the office, sat on her bum!

If it’s not that then she’s hidden away

IPhone out, having a play

She won’t let me work, get on with it

Controlling me, moving me like a puppet

I just hope that one day I’ll stop seeing her

That day will be great, even, SUPER!

Waiting

Waiting is a horrible thing

What is this news gonna bring?

Is it positive? is it a yes?

Did I do what was asked of the test?

Is it negative? is it a no?

Do I drown myself into my sorrow?

This is killing me, hours and days

Walking around in my own haze

Checking my phone for a buzz or a ring

“When you going to ring you poxy thing!”

I can’t stand it, it’s getting too much

How can one response cause such a fuss

The phone rings, lights up at last

I was quick, super quick, lightning fast

I wait anxiously, saying hello

Is it good news, or just another blow?

Hello, I have spoken to them, this is the news

Thank you, I hold my breath, win or lose?
