All That We Bleed

In between the lines there’s a lot of obscurity
I’m not inclined to resign to maturity
If it’s all right, then you’re all wrong
But why bounce around to the same damn song?**

Another year’s gone by. What changed? What’s new? Absolutely nothing and everything.

After four years, it’s finally time to let it go. Time to move on to new challenges, and a huge challenge it is that awaits just beyond the horizon. With luck and His help, perhaps this will be the job that will see me through retirement.

I owe the company a lot. It’s where I first felt that what I know counts for something. But now it’s lost its way. It’s been losing its way for the longest time. It’s been self-imploding, alienating the very people that serve as its foundation. But the sad part is, even now that it’s realizing its recent decisions were absolute mistakes, it won’t admit to it and won’t actively take corrective measures.

It’s bleeding left and right, losing engineer after engineer. Its precious skill pool now almost a vacuum, it attempts to remedy the situation with new blood but still neglects to take care of its old wounds. And so the bleeding goes on.

It’s a very sad state of affairs.
