A Desk to Hide Behind

John Henry Jowett

Today I was plagued by the question that haunts every person in a quarter-life crisis. Unyielding, it demands that the twenty-somethings have an answer ready or be faced with our failure and disappointment. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE? Selfishly and secretly I have been searching desperately for a job that I could do with no real investment and void of passion. I have been combing the classifieds for a desk to hide behind. This morning I read the familiar story of the roads of many sizes; that calls for those who would be willing to work hard at this life to take the narrow way. I think it’s time I start looking for smaller streets and people who need my help. I don’t want to waste the struggles that taught me everything I know on a paycheck that means nothing to me.
