Carefree considerations

When you try to cheer yourself up,
but nothing really works,
and your friends are all being
such unapproachable jerks.

You just have to remember
that some days will suck,
so hold your head high
and don’t give a f**K.

And if you feel like screaming,
just let it all out.
Say every nasty word,
and don’t hesitate to shout.

If the neighbors start to complain,
just scream a little louder;
they’ll look the other way
when they see your rifle and gun powder.

Stand as tall as you can
and bid your shitty day farewell
because you’ve made up your mind,
knowing it’s better not to dwell.

Be happy you’re alive
and be grateful for each day.
And don’t forget to laugh sometimes,
it really is okay.

  1. Oh I loved your powerful words with no filtering dearest Michele. I got a good chuckle too since you know how it’s been dealing with these neighbors. It came at a perfect time for Fri-Yay make the most of it day. I’m loading my shot gun now.. 😂😂😂

    1. Funny, I was writing you a comment just as you were writing one to me.😉
      I’m glad you could get a chuckle out of this. This was one I’d started writing several years ago and never finished until last night. I figured everyone could use a little humor right now. Life is just plain hard these days. I’m glad you’re smiling after the week you’ve had. 😅🛀🏻💛xo

        1. And your peeing down the street story did the same for me. I came near to doing that myself the other day! 😬But that’s just cause I’m old now and the pipes seem to burst more easily if I’m not careful. 😳 Lol… I’m glad we’re both finding things to laugh about today. I’m off to go have a mammogram and you know those are never fun. 😩

            1. Ha! I was thinking about that, but then I figured does it really matter? It’s just normal stuff that most everyone faces already. Now if I told them about my second head or my third arm, they might be a little freaked out I guess. 🤪😳😬🤭🤫
