"Heaven has a road, but no one travels it; Hell has no gate, but men will bore through to get there."

... i just got laid off and this is what i think about that:

The Elemental Self

Looking not for the world’s judgment
Delivered through the daily, weekly boning grind-
Wealth is immune to measurement.
It is weighed within.
The wandering lion alone commands the desert
Requiring only silence
To rest from operatic pleas
As a diffusion of sunlight falls
Over past and future dreams,
Remembrances of happiness speak-
Calling out in a song
That the words’ words cannot connect.
Rock endures the lapping and enfolding waves
Of the ancient tidal seas.
Cliff and mountain see from their own summits-
They shift and move within,
Catching the eyes of sky and sun
With only the effort of recognition remaining,
Triumphant, shining, illuminated and whole.
