poem ~ need to hustle

I've been told I need to hustle 
every day of my life,
To fulfill the promise
and the calling on my God given life.

I've been told I need to hustle
working hard to make it happen, 
In everything I have to do
to be connected to what's most true.

I've been told I need to hustle
and be like the ant,
Whose constantly busy working
just to make ends meet met.

I've been told I need to hustle 
to make an impact here,
But the daily grind to do more
makes life feel like it's a chore.

I've been told I need to hustle
to make a difference here,
As if hustling to get ahead 
is gonna make me feel fulfilled instead.

I've been told I need to hustle
to get ahead in life,
But as I study Jesus path
it makes me think about this twice.

I've been told I need to hustle
and work myself to the bone,
Yet when I study the principles of success
I don't find this to be the grand slam home.

I've been told I need to hustle
yet when simple disciplines you set,
More is greatly accomplished 
when work life balance you establish.

I've been told I need to hustle 
for there isn't enough time,
I find this feeds discontent 
and more of the scarcity mindset.

I've been told I need to hustle
and produce more from the core,
That what I'm doing isn't enough 
and that there's more benefits in more.

I've been told I need to hustle 
and I've kept this on repeat,
Until I've become so exhausted
I have no desire to doing a thing but sleep.

I've been told I need to hustle
but I see life has much more, 
When I live in the space of less
I find contentment gallore.

I've been told I need to hustle 
yet when I stop and look,
I see the beauty in each day
when my heart in touch I stay.

I've been told I need to hustle 
yet I promise you its not true,
For the achievement in life
doesn't come by all you do.

I've been told I need to hustle 
to live a life that's complete,
But I'm seeking something different
to intentionally just live and be me.
