POEM: ATTITUDE FORWARDED BY JOSEPH PINTO STEPHEN

( A lot of morals in this Poem.Thanks to Mr. Stephen for adoring our
Publication with this great Poem by forwarding it for "New World".)

ATTITUDE
 

I woke up today, excited over all I get to
do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day
I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the weather
is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is
getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances
encourage me to plan my purchases wisely
and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health
or I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can lament over all that my parents
didn't give me when I was growing up or I can
Feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns
or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends
or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to
discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work
or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.
I can complain because I have to go to school or
eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new
tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmer dejectedly because I have to
do housework or I can feel honored because the
Lord Has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.
today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
what today will be like is up to me.
I get to choose what kind of day I will have.
