Calling 

People make many mistakes

Throughout their working lives

Mainly the career they undertake

In order to survive

The pursuit of status and of wealth

May well help them to thrive

But at what cost if what it brings

Is soul numbing unhappiness

There are the others who pursue

Careers that are their calling

The money and status second to

The reward and joy work brings

So they may not have big houses

Or a nameplate upon the door

But they have found true happiness

And that’s worth even more

A life at work of work enjoyed

Is their lifetime reward
