You Just Can’t Stop Digging

Digging out for so long

Sometime, I wish for a break

But there is no slowing down

Or even a pause sign ahead

Those digging with me

Are all after something

Or may be many things

May be I’m after something too

But what is it

I still don’t know

But I can’t stop

This is all I know

As slowing or stopping

Is next to death

In this fast-paced race

And once you expire

You vanish away

Without leaving behind

Any sign of your existence

Tweaked an old poem of mine for this week’s V.J.’s Weekly Challenge – Dig. You can read the original version by clicking here

    This fits nicely here. Digging ourselves out – I feel the weariness of your words.

      I wrote the first version after going through a rough time at my workplace, back in 2017.
      And I checked your prompt, and your introduction to this week’s Dig, I felt that there’s no difference between running and digging, if one has to go through ups and downs of epic proportions.
      Thank you so very much for liking this, V.J.
