No Such Thing as a Bad Day

No Such Thing as a Bad Day

Next time that you tell yourself
Or anyone who’ll hear:
“I’ve had a really bad day” here’s
Something that should endear:

The kind of person who thinks that
A whole day or a week
Can be summed up by being “bad”
Has gratitude that’s weak

This person who can classify
A full twenty-four hours
As being a big waste has low
Appreciation powers

Let me paint a picture of
What these people are like:
They fail to see the three home runs
And focus on the strike

They hit one bump on a smooth road
And so the whole road’s rough
A whole workout is torture ‘cause
Just one segment is tough

A person is an asshole ‘cause
They said that thing last year
Every single obstacle
Is so very severe

That it taints the good that may
Exist along side it
These people just aren’t capable
Of creating the split

Of recognizing moments that
Brought lightness to their day
And not letting the hiccups take
Attention all away

Little things to think about
All the words that we choose
Have direct relationship
To if we sing the blues

And write off an entire day
Or week or month or year
Or if we choose acuity
And see our lives more clear

Appreciating love that’s shown
By friends and family
Recognizing all the good
To a greater degree

Living life not day by day
But moment by moment
Letting go of the bad ones
And not letting torment

Because another moment is
Just one moment away
And those who truly understand
Will not have a bad day

    Nice piece. Your words made me think differently about my outlook on life.

    Oh Miro, thank-you for sharing this poem with me. I really needed to read this. I love the idea of moment to moment rather than day to day. Leaving regrets and focusing on the present. Thank-you my friend for steering me to this page.

      Losing focus on the present and worrying about the past or future is usually the cause of any kind of unrest. When we focus on the now, our gratitude becomes more clear to us. Regrets can’t have any effect on us as long as we always remember that the time is *now*, the place we are is *here*, and we are *this moment*.
      Peace & grace,
      ~Miro
