The Work Pile

These are the things I cannot ignore,
And even though it is not every day,
There comes a time I have to close the door,
And battle against the on-coming fray.
It will allow me to, one day, emerge,
And give you all me remaining time.
It is not you I am trying to purge,
But rather this piling mountain I climb.
Some day, it will also happen to you,
And I will try not to create a fuss.
It is just something we all have to do.
Even though, we hope it may escape us.
Welcome to this modern society
Where valuable time is what we pay.
