September Poem of the Month



Outside my window, a new day I see,

And only I can determine

What kind of day it will be.


It can be busy and sunny, laughing and glad,

Or boring and cold, unhappy and sad.

My own state of mind is the determining key,

For I am only the person I let myself be.


I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,

Or be selfish and think just of my self.

I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,

Or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.


I can be patient with those who may not understand,

Or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.

But I have faith in myself, and believe what I say,

And personally intend to make the best of each day.
