Our society condemns it

But most people need it

to gather their bearings

make sense of the world

And generally feel good about being alive

Society celebrates ambition

And those who don’t take prisoners

Monsters, all of them

Driven mad by the messages they believe

Earn more money, get the corner office, and screw your competition

No, it is the man who takes time off

Who is the most sane

He recognizes that doing nothing

creates a void

for something

And that “something” will be reoccurring

if it is meant to be done

A wise man is like a volcano

He doesn’t force an eruption

But waits for it to happen

Inspiration bubbles from within

And he knows the words of wisdom
