And so I thought 


once I felt seen

got praised, got a raise 

it would go away


once I de-stressed

got time off from my job

it would drift away


once I reached my goal

got rated “exceptional”

it would surely leave


once I felt proud

of all that I’ve achieved

it would bring reprieve 


And so I thought

I've always thought it is a design fault of Nature that you can't think of nothing. It would be so destressing.
