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.
