Stop complaining
Life owes you nothing:
Keep retaining
Satisfaction, maintaining.
Effort and reward
Isn’t very hard.

Start thinking, create
It’s never too late;
Production abates
Depressive states.
Look after yourself
Does wonders for health.

Look up and not down
Create smiles from frowns;
No need to clown
Strike out, go to town.
Walk away from the screen
It’s making you mean.

Start up and aim high
Why not reach for the sky;
Wave anger goodbye,
Just be a nice guy.
Your job to improve
Get up, time to move.
