The bus to the train
Stairs, stairs and more stairs up and down Iím tired
Walk, stride, heat, sweat dripping stinging the side of my face
Clock work, like clock work
I go to work in the summer time

This pursuit for monetary gain puts a stressful strain on my spiritual sanity
I canít let this be
Rewind please

Back to the bus the people the noise the seat my seat
I like to call it my retreat seat
My ticket is in my heart (Christ)
The pages of my bible living and breathing take me on roads far away
I am willing and I go there where the way is narrow and people delight in the Lord

Picture me seating in my retreat seat
In a world that doesnít know me
Neither do they recognize who sent me
So they try as they might to fight against me
The wiles of their leader canít faze me
I stand in Christ my king and victory

In my everyday retreat seat I find peace

I could feel the stress and anxiety in your words. Keep up the good work.

Incongruity of the fourth stanza bothered me, otherwise this is a good example of open free verse. Watch certain grammatical adjustments.
