PSALM 23, ANTITHESIS
By Marcia K. Hornok The clock is my dictator, I shall not rest.
It makes me like down only when exhausted.
It leads me to deep depression./It hounds my soul.
It leads me in circles of frenzy for activity’s sake.
Even though I run frantically from task to task,
I will never get it all done,
For my “ideal” is with me./Deadlines and my need for approval, they drive me.
They demand performance from me, beyond the limits of my schedule.
They anoint my head with migraines.
My in- basket overflows.
Surely fatigue and time pressure shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the bonds of frustration forever./
