A short poem about Downsizing.
For many years, I worked for a major corporation.
I loved my work with the exception of the times when my
boss would start talking about the need to downsize.
Downsizing meant I would have to let someone go.
When we made the decision to simplify our life,
we started our search for a home in New Brunswick
but we started the search with downsizing in mind. Read the
verses in this poetry about our thoughts on the new meaning of downsizing to us.
A Short Poem Downsizing Means Poet Catherine Pulsifer
My previous life when I heard the term
downsizing meant a turn for worse
But now we are talking not about a job
We are talking about a smaller home
Letting go of space
Letting go of material things
Will this be doom?
But the benefits to me
Less housework you see
Lower heating costs
And a cosizer house
So now when I hear the term
Living simply with
The things that mean something to me!
