Your Being Pissed Is of Your Own Make: A Poem

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


Nobody can physically get inside your skull

as if to press some alarming buttons there

others' power to do it boils down to a null

so why wouldn't we all try to be a little fair.

Yes, fair -- to all those jerks, idiots, and fools

as you are expecting them to have your mind

to go by some civil norms and all social rules

and to act with courtesy, being nice and kind.

It's no one's duty to treat you with some class

but it's your choice to stop knee-jerk reactions

to no white-glove treatment of your precious ass

since you can't place an order for nice interactions.

Develop new respect for your personal space

within which everything is of your own make

so you can laugh in the whole world\s face

if your peace of mind is the one at stake.

Still mulling in mind all those grudges

poisoning your body with toxins of hate

once and for all let's stop playing judges

to take off our shoulders the heavy weight.

People won't change to make you feel good

so you might as well change only thing you can

love yourself enough to insist upon a happy mood

and as for all those many crazies -- be a bigger man.
