Spare a Day of Life for Total Acceptance: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


If you're considering managing your stress

pick any day of the week for accepting it all

including daily news, well, wars a little less

but even my satires and an occasional troll.

See how really flexible you could possibly be

as you go through day with a sheepish smile

pretending to be unburdened and like all free

seeing geniuses and idiots on the same pile.

Don't forget a compliment to coworker jerk

the one that you secretly wanted to strangle

along with others on job to animate and perk

in short -- see your reality from a different angle.

Let "who cares" be your mantra for the day

and see how much it feels like a rotten lie

keep all your tendency to disagree at bay

acting as if you are being on drugs high.

Ignore all people with some moral abnormality

those you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole

just accept everything of life in its totality

especially things that you can't control.

Remember, it is only one day to act out of whack

a little experiment, probably so weird, but clever

because the next day you'll get your life back

being your old self again as critical as ever.

So, when tomorrow comes as normal as could be

now thinking back, experience was a kind of cool

with idea of accepting all that you hear and see

even though it made you feel like a total fool.
