Interview (Poem)

The question was asked,

My mind wanted to go blank,

I didn’t know how to answer what was asked,

It makes me want to disappear when my mind goes blank,

Yes, it’s so stressful trying to answer what was asked.

 

Sometimes I can survived being analyzed by one person,

It depends on the job that I’m being interviewed for,

I want to run and hide when interviewed by more than one person,

It doesn’t matter what I’m being interviewed for,

Yes, whether I’m calm or not depends on whether I’m interviewed by one or more than one person.

 

Sometimes I get depressed after the interview is over,

Depressed at the thought of not  getting the job,

Depressed about thinking of everything that was said after it was over,

Depressed because of the stress that appears when trying to get the job,

Still in the end I’m finally able to relax after everything is over.

Resign (Poem)

I lost it all,

You gave me a chance,

I was really depressed when I lost it all,

You slowly helped me get out of my depression when you gave me a chance,

Thank you for being the light when I lost it all.

 

I didn’t earn a lot of money with you,

Yet that small amount was better than nothing,

I slowly achieved my dreams because of the money I earned with you,

I slowly went from having nothing to something,

I’ll always be grateful to you.

 

I hesitated when I was trying to resign,

I felt I owed you,

Yet you made it okay to resign,

You gave kind words even after I said goodbye to you,

Later you said it was layoff and not resign.

 

I wasn’t angry that you let me go,

I knew it was time to go,

You knew it was time to let me go,

I am now in the right career path because you let me go,

That’s why I can smile and not look back with regret as I go.

Job (Poem)

I want that job,

That job doesn’t want me,

Should I cry because of that job?

Should I whine because that job doesn’t want me?

No way!

 

I’ll show that job the mistake they made for not choosing me,

I’ll show them how successful I can be,

I’m going to show them all the extraordinary qualities they failed to see in me,

I’ll show them how amazing I can be,

That’s how awesome I’ll be.

 

I’ll turn the rejection into motivation,

I’ll turn my sadness and frustration into determination,

All I need is my own motivation,

All I need is my own determination,

That’s all I need to be unstoppable and succeed in my plan of action.

 

Getting a job isn’t always easy. At times it’s hard to move forward, but that’s when you have to work hard to believe that you have what it takes to succeed.
