From A Break

I took to a pause
From a momentarily nonplus
Over the horde of struggle
Saddles myriad fairs to snuggle
Climbing the ladder to success
With the zillion beings so restless
In their ups and downs of life
Inciting many to cause strife

I took the break
Examined life with rectitude
Applying calculatively my attitude
Watching, studying many toiling
Going competitively, their sweat boiling

I returned from my break
Harnessing my discoveries
To make productive deliveries
Of my empirical finding
And I soften my landing.
