once for a lifetime

A mind needs thoughts like a sword needs sharpening... to pare a phrase.  Somehow, playing Candy Crush for hours on end won't cut it..  The days of stress; being badgered by greedy bastards without regard  for anything except their quarterly bonuses take a toll, as does the things done to relieve the sickening feelings it invokes.  Complex thoughts and feelings are windowed down; grinding through the minutes by whatever thoughtlessness serves to force the time to pass.  The measured reflection, and the careful consideration evaporate, leaving the dregs of emotional damage and disgust.  The will to betterment needs to arise, and bring hope and help for me.
