Our lives are the values we choose to live
Some days we give thanks and some days we don't

There is no one blame or an excuse for being irate with the world. 



All day yesterday you complained about the smallest irritation and overlooked the worst thing that could ever happen to a person and that's not right or living life to the fullest

You should know everyday when you wake and rise this is a great start

You should know the moment you washed and clothed your body that was a wonderful thing because you had clean clothes to wear

You should be elated when you took the first bite of breakfast and the last bite at dinner knowing that someone else wished they had just a measely ole bite, you greedy ole thing!

And when you arrived in your employer's parking lot you knew then that you were working toward another 40-hour week and maybe even some overtime to shop.  So I guess you'll still complain and still frown.  What's a face to do to get alittle of the smiling action?

We don't always realize life's worth, knowing that we can trade in our grumpy ole start for a better mind set only if we believed.  

We know ourselves better than others, but
sometimes people see us better than we do
because of the grumpy ole face

Grumpy ole life!
You started it!

Grumpy ole life!
We only see what you present!

Grumpy ole life!
Better you than me
because I love me!

Grumpy ole life!
A frown and a day
maybe tomorrow you'll
learn that a smile and
a day adds a better tomorrow

I'll keep smiling!
You keep frowning,
but I'm hoping that tomorrow
will be a better day for
Grumpy ole you!

I love reading this poem.When I first saw the title to this poem,it relates to my old man lol.People should appreciate everything that they have and got.They shouldn't complain about the littliest things or make other people's lives a living hell just because you're grumpy all the time.In this day and age and the type of world that we live in,people should appreciate every breath that they take and cherish valuable things that makes them happy.take care.I enjoy reading your poem
