What Makes Me Tick

To put it in a simple phrase would just be too much,

What makes me tick are many things like cursing and such,

Like littering and disrespect and friends that are fake,

Like never using your turn signal for goodness sakes,

There's talking back to your parents which is really rude,

To always picking fights and having an attitude,

I can't believe that he did this and that she did that,

That child over there that's mad is being a brat,

But complaining just brings relief when I'm stressed

When really the best anitidote is focusing on why I'm blessed

Go out into the world and live a life with joy,

Keep your attitude positive and depression can be destroyed.
