Virus

There is an infection spreading
Across our world today
This virus is picked up and passed
Though certain things we say

It’s caught from pessimistic folks
Who only bitch and whine
The ones who don’t see the bright side
Instead just see decline

Once the bug is passed to you
It’s tempting to bitch back
About the things wrong with the world
And all the things you lack

And spread it on to other folks
Who haven’t been exposed
Turn them into whiners too
When once they were composed

Populate the landscape with
Your negativity
Tainting and infecting all
Of those who don’t agree

Although there isn’t any way
To stop from catching it
There is a treatment that is sure
To make this bug remit

Instead of nodding in agreement
And saying “Yes, it’s bad”
Administer the vaccine of
Responding with “I’m glad”

Say the things you’re grateful for
And not just focusing
On the things that bother you
No, take the chance to sing

About how you’ve been blessed in life
Because if you’re alive
You have a lot more than those who
Weren’t able to survive

The only way to vaccinate
The virus of complaining
Is not with pills or shots but by
A good outlook maintaining

Don’t nitpick over little things
When so much is still good
Appreciate all that you have
Instead of what you should

Don’t spread the virus, spread the cure
By having gratitude
Being positive and having
The right attitude

The Cancer of Negativity

8 Jul

The Cancer of Negativity

John arrives at work and sees
That something’s gone awry
He rubs his temples angrily
And lets out a big sigh

“I’m sick and tired of this!” he whines
And his cancer does spread
To Jennifer, a co-worker
Who can’t help turn her head

An hour later, Jennifer
Snaps at the cashier who
Asks her to repeat her order
Of her coffee brew

“Venti Macchiato, PLEASE!”
She says indignantly
John’s cancer spreads to the cashier
Which robs her of her glee

The cashier finishes her day
And steps aboard the bus
All seats are taken and she grunts
And huffs and makes a fuss

“Perfect!” she says quite annoyed
“This day has been the worst!”
John’s cancer spreads to passengers
But one man’s not coerced

One man is immune to it
As he stands up from seat
“Please have mine,” he offers but
The cashier does retreat

“No thanks,” she says to him ’cause
The cancer’s grabbed a hold
No one can assist her now
Even those who are bold

Even those who are selfless
Those with great empathy
She’s blind to gestures of goodwill
She wants to disagree

She goes home and has little patience
For her 4 year old
The young girl quickly draws the wrath
Of mom as she does scold

The child and sends her to her room
The young girl sits and pouts
Next day she spreads John’s cancer
As she angrily shouts

The anger and hostility
Continues to spread wide
Impossible to stop because
John didn’t take in stride

The little thing that went awry
And he felt need to voice
His sad, pathetic, weak lament
Of his cancerous choice

To show his negativity
Instead of BEATING CHEST
RELISHING THE CHALLENGE OF
BEING HIS VERY BEST

WELCOMING THE CHANCE TO BE
TESTED BY ALL WHO DARE
TO TEST THE IRON WILL OF A
WARRIOR WHO WILL BARE

WHO WILL ENDURE, SURVIVE, ADAPT
HANDLE AND PERSEVERE
Too bad John and all his victims
Chose to whine and sneer

Instead of rolling up their sleeves
And saying “I will not
Be ravaged by the same cancer
With which you have been wrought”

Too bad they did not declare
“COME HIT ME WITH YOUR WORST!”
Too bad all of them believed
That they weren’t blessed, but cursed

Too bad many more will fall
To this disease because
They focus not on THIS MOMENT
But instead on what was

Or what they wished had been, too bad
More Warriors don’t walk
The Earth and show immunity
To such negative talk

Law of Attraction

10 Jun

“We don’t attract what we want, we attract what we are.” ~unknown

magnetLaw of Attraction

Attraction’s law is quite simple
To understand, my friends
It states that what comes to one is
Exactly what one sends

A grumble and a groan on Monday
Morning? Wait and see
What that kind of mindset attracts
It brings grimness to thee

A sigh and sorrow when challenge
Appears to block your path?
That attitude will not bring strength
Instead, just hardship’s wrath

To say “I cannot do it” is
To simply speak what’s true
Those with no faith in themselves
Are right, they seldom do

But those who are more careful with
The message they put out
Those who do not cry, lament
Complain, bemoan and pout

Attract exactly what they send
If they proclaim, “I’m strong!”
Then strength will come to them no matter
If the day is long

Those who beat their chest and say
“This challenge I will beat!”
Attract the fortitude to never
Feel sting of defeat

Those who say, “I will survive!
I’ll thrive! I will endure!”
Attract vitality, longevity
Clout and allure

Blame no one but yourself for all
That you attract each day
If negativity is everywhere
It’s ‘cause you say

Negativity when you
Could make another choice
So what today will you attract
With your magnetic voice?

Self-Influence

17 Dec

Self-Influence

Influence is all around
And often there’s no choice
You’re bombarded by many a
Selfish, frustrated voice

Surrounded by those impatient
Walk beside those with fear
Spend all day or night in presence
Of those with no cheer

And they are all influences on
Even the strongest will
Eventually they will heat up
And melt those who are chill

That is why it’s important
To make sure self-imposed
Influence is around us
So that we stay composed

Wear a piece of jewelry
That helps serve to remind
Of what you are, a Warrior
And by that be defined

If you are surrounded by
Those who exhibit rage
To counter their bad influence
You will have to engage

Auditory influence
That broadcasts peace, control
As they rant, rave and scream and shout
Play music with some soul

Counter all the influence
That is ugly and dark
Don’t just sit there and take it
Make an effort, embark

Surround yourself with opposite
Of the things that you hate
Things of beauty, things of peace
Things that slow your heart rate

Yes, the ones who are angry
Will be put off by it
And that is the perfect time to
Say, “I don’t give a shit”

They do not realize that they
Are influences of
Negativity and so
Of course they’re blind to love

State it clear: “This is what I
Choose as my influence
Not what you currently do
Put out, a vibe that’s tense

I choose this peace, this quiet
This control, this poise, this grace
This is the self-imposed influence
I choose to embrace

Because the influence you give
For me just doesn’t work
So look, listen and show restraint
Or elsewhere go berserk”

Junk People

15 Feb

“Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with people who reflect values, goals interests and lifestyles.” ~Author Unknown


Junk People

“You are what you eat”
As the old saying goes
But we’re also defined
By the friends that we chose

Just like when we
Only consume junk food
Which leaves us lethargic
And in a bad mood

So too do junk people
Have the same effect
Those who lack drive
In us will reflect

The ones who are lazy
The ones so afraid
Malnourish our spirit
And passion degrade

The ones who seek short cuts
The ones who complain
Junk people encourage
Our dread and disdain

And just as we must
Sometimes clear out the shelves
Of chocolate and chips
To take care of ourselves

So too we must
Sometimes clear out our list
Of junk people who seem to
Constantly resist

The truth that we’re here
To face challenges bravely
To not look on tests
With an attitude gravely

To embrace change and seek
To grow stronger each day
To do all of the things
That we so proudly say

The key to your health
Lies in foods consumed
The same goes for spirit
It lies in folks that bloomed

You must fill your circle
With people who try
People who hope
And themselves apply

Brothers and sisters
Who all show no fear
Who choose to inspire
All those far and near

Don’t worry if you
Cannot track them down
I guarantee there’s
Quite a few in your town

But first you will need
To clear junk people out
And once their effect
Of negative doubt

No longer lingers
You’ll finally see
The positive people
Who’ll help you be free

Of complaining and whining
And accepting less
It’s these positive people
That inspire success
