Don’t Be Cranky — Day 15 #NaPoWriMo #amwriting

Don’t Be Cranky, Do The Hanky-Panky


He turned cranky

Life more than half done

(if you live to 100)

And I want to say “no”

It could all end tomorrow

Or today what’s so special

About tomorrow anyway?

Live life right now,

Pet your dog (or cat)

Kiss your kid

Or your spouse

Maybe even both

Hug your friends

Smell the freaking rose

Skip on your toes

Guffaw through your nose

Laugh at yourself

Laugh at me, I don’t care

Put it all out there


(not naked you could get arrested for that)

Listen to the songs nature’s playing

Put down the cell or the tablet

Remove the earbuds

Be present

Don’t be afraid

To laugh

To love

To cry

To tell what’s in your heart

It’s a start

To live today

“cause everything little thing’s

gonna be okay”
