Staying Positive

Give me a mop and floor cleaner,

then leave after showing me a dirty floor.

I’ll pretend it’s a guitar and I’m a singer

while I’m performing a much-desired encore.


Throw out your boxes and your trash.

I will take it and make it my treasure.

I should thank you for wasting cash

because taking free stuff is always a pleasure.


Take away my house,

I’ll only be rid of another bill.

The only thing I’ll feel sorry for is the mouse

and I’m not afraid of the winter chill.


So, I can’t afford fancy dinners and expensive dates.

Spending money doesn’t define my character.

Women who only date for money, I hate

and they should all be thrown in a wood chipper.


I may live a life that others may pity

but I pity you in the long run.

I am used to having nothing and being happy

while you need everything, or reach for a gun.


My life isn’t blessed or easy

but there’s no reason for the easy way out.

I’m happy with being alive and healthy

and I hope one day you’ll figure that out.
