Note To Self #42: Why Work?

Don't work for name,
Don't work for fame, 
Work to touch another life,
It makes your soul smile, come alive.

Don't work for the money,
Or for the alluring honey, 
Work to accomplish an impossible feat,
It makes your heart skip a little beat.
 
Don't work for your boss,
Or for profit and loss,
Work where making a difference is the theme,
It makes your head dream a little dream.

Don't work out of boredom,
Or to build a kingdom,
Work to inspire many a generation,
And fulfil your existential motivation.

Work for the sake of work,
Not for the fruits thereof.
