I Have Work to Do (Author: Ankur Mutreja)

December 25, 2019

I have work to do. I am born, and I have to make the parents get my birth certificate.

I am not a toddler anymore. I have to work hard to join a school.

I have grown bigger. I have to workout, build muscles, get a partner and …

I did it, but the real work starts now. I have to get a job.

I have a job and am working on taking up responsibility. I have to marry.

I have a family, and now I have to work more. I have to make their future.

I have grown up kids, but now they have work to do. I have to oversee their work.

I have seen enough, now I have just a little more work to do. I have to learn to relax.

I am dead, but my worries are my work now. Who is getting my death certificate?

I have no anxieties left, but the work is not yet over. I have to protest my death before god.

I protested successfully: the threat of hunger strike unto death worked. I have work to do.
