Now I Take It Easy

images-3Gone are those days when I used to feel heat

Deadline coming near, my heart used to beat

I am much calmer and easy going now

Don’t succumb under pressure somehow 

I have run, done enough to prove my capabilities

Shown my talent, a  perfectionist, tested my abilities

Times have changed, pressure doesn’t kick me

I do things at my own pace, this is a new cool me 🙂

If there is a delay, all hell will not break lose

If I don’t meet the deadline, I will politely excuse

I will try my best to achieve my goal

But that would not become the sore

Surely not a question of life and death

I work best if I take interest



  1. I don’t know what to say. I am speechless, cause this is something that has been bothering me for quite sometime. Your poem has touched the very same dilemma on my mind. I am going to take this as an advice and breathe. 🙂
    Thank you! This is really a great piece! 🙂

  2. A good reminder…sometimes I have to remind myself that it’s just work – the politics, deadlines, annoying characters in the office – there are more important things in life.
