Those Ungrateful to Life: A Poem

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


Someone was the first to say how "life sucks"

and then there were many to readily agree

all in a business of counting their lacks

ungrateful to life as they could be.

Really folks, so many are good at seeing wrong

masters of judgment and givers of bad names

somehow making them feel cool and strong

while parading with their incessant blame.

For some reason which I may never know

putting others down makes them feel taller

bitching apparently a favorite part of show

where they don't play a racer but a crawler.

So if life really sucks, they are its makers

mental beggars extending begging dishes

going through life not as givers but takers

feeling entitled to fulfillment of their wishes.

Thinking if they cry loud and spice it with curses

that will make them victims of some sinister force

but with all that incessant complaining and fussing

they are really nothing but losers with no remorse.
