Life of a freelancer

This is the story of a freelancer,
Whose life can be compared to a roller coaster
More than the hardships of the job,
It’s the hunting for work that’s flop

Once you land up with an assignment
Doesn’t mean, it’s the end of your impediment
You now have to finish the work to Client’s satisfaction,
After that starts the chase for your compensation

And then there are clients who want superior quality,
But in the name of remuneration expect you to accept charity
Not always that may be the case
Because few clients are the icing with the cake

On top of all there is the pressure to pay,
All your bills, which keeps piling day by day
Not to forget your friends and family,
Who think your work is not to be taken seriously

In the end however, this is the path I prefer,
As my work makes me my sole master
I have the liberty to experiment,
With my intellectual to all my contentment!

Using big words does not help in making of a poem . On the contrary, simple words but strong sentences make great poetry. This is more of prose than poetry. Please don't focus so much on rhyming coz when one tends to focus so much on using words that rhyme you end up destroying the poem.

All in all, an amateurish attempt, coz I have seen better from you.

Thank Sai, Div, Kaake, Shweta glad u all liked the poem.

13th random lets take ur comment point by point.

"Using big words does not help in making of a poem" - Which big words u referring to??

"On the contrary, simple words but strong sentences make great poetry" - true and i have kept the words simple enough for any average reader to understand.

"This is more of prose than poetry" - I do not know of any prose that has such short sentences.

"Please don't focus so much on rhyming coz when one tends to focus so much on using words that rhyme you end up destroying the poem" - Keeping my thoughts intact if i manage to rhyme it also... what is the harm? I personally find non-rhyming poems boring (but there can be exceptions)

"All in all, an amateurish attempt, coz I have seen better from you" - Ok hope to write better next time. Thanks for ur comment.

Rhymes, or no rhymes, a poem is a great piece to read and appreciate as long as we are able to perceive things from the poet's perspective. And I can totally do that in here :)

So great work Celestial... As long as you do what your mind is happy doing, no office job of sitting around even which pays you double would satisfy you :)

Cheers!
