The question on my mind


Part of me wants to retire.
Emotions of the heart.
The mind stops me.
The need to work.

A conflict faced.
To weigh my options.
Retirement benefits.
Against lack of it.

Have I saved enough?
To live in comfort.
Is there enough medical?
If my health fails.

I have worked hard.
Is now the time to relax?
To opt for retirement.
To reap from my hard labour.

The question on my mind;
Is today the day to retire?
I cannot seem to decide.
My heart and mind in conflict.
