Aboard the Amistad Monday to Friday, Bound by shackles and fetters at the Office

Updated on April 9, 2013

I feel like am in a circle it keeps spinining

but there’s no end. I feel like a spider who

is tied up in its own web. I use to love coming

to this place, that feeling has been gone almost

two years now I come by force and get what

needs to be done. My eyes are forever on the

clock wanting to know when its lunch time

and time to get out of this place, that is now

filled of venom, friends spying on friends,

secrets they no longer keep everyone is about

self seeking a higher position.

I feel like a jew in holocaust just awaiting my

death in this concentration camp, my mind

has become so bitter and filled with posion.

I wish it could be the same again but everything

has changed. I trust no one because every skin

teeth here certainly aint a laugh.

Just one man has shatter this whole

place there’s mostly ruins that remains. Friendship

is being buried everyday the coldness, stress, depression

and bitterness is felt within every foot step. The silence

of this once cheerful place now echoes through the halls

only wails of sorrows and sadness did we buy our final

fate by putting them in power to govern? We have been

thrown into a dungeon with political shackles on our hands,

bound by fetters of paper work that never materialize into


When I go home at evenings, some peace of mind comes but then

again before I wink its morning and back to slavery

again. I am aboard the amistad by 8:00 a.m. not a minute

late or punishment can be your daily bread. The whips from

the master across our backs, news carriers flock Hitler's

office only filling their ears with gossip.

Is it Friday yet my brain keep yelling , hurry up and come soon.

I just need to get the hell out of this crazy place. Then Friday comes

and Sundays are here way too soon. Massa is going to punish us

again he’ll verbally and mentally abuse us in every way he can.

We try to give Hitler what he wants but nothing is good enough,

seems like he desire our blood our sweat is just not sufficient.

He is the devil incarnated in a man. Our ethics, values and morals

he wants us to compromise. There's no one to turn to everyone

or most of them seems to be the same. I feel like am all alone

standing in the middle of a crowd yelling and no one is hearing.

I wish I can love my enemies as myself but my good mind they have turned it.

I've become very callous i find they are prospering too long

in there wickedness . How long LORD shall the wicked

prosper? oh LORD lift up thy scepter........ !!!

      Hi Franky good to see you once more. Yes I am asking God how long shall the wicked prosper the psalmist said fret not thyself of evil doers for they to shall be CUT OFF.......(Psalms 37). I am working in a very awful unappreciated, stressful environment that once was such a lovely place to be you would have gone the extra mile. Now its like 98% of the people just wants home time to come anything after 4:15pm at work is a no no its sad to see how people can change you ............

      Hi kids craft and welcome, yes you are sure right working isn't just about the money, but to be welcomed, feel love and appreciated for your hard labours etc and when that doesn't exist then there is lack of interest no one wants to go the extra mile in a toxic environment like that.

      Thanks for coming by

      You seem to be working in a sad place. Some people need to control everything and I think that infortunately it removes the will to work and give the 100%. I find that when a work place is pleasant, people have fun while working, are more creative and thrive and it reflects on the company!

      When you think of the work condition of Google with good day care incorporate in the company, restaurants and they have to spend part of the time not working on their project so their creativity will go further.

      I hope that things will change for you otherwise, it will change you and make you ill :-(

      Good luck!

      This is terrible. Has it just gotten worse or under new management? The whole world seems to be crazy. Maybe you should be looking around for something you like more, a calmer place. I will pray for you, this minute. God bless you.
