How Moody Can You Get? 



When we say we woke up

At the wrong side of our beds,

What do we really mean?

Is the right side the place

Where we wake up happy;

Or is it rather the left?

Or maybe it’s just our way of saying;

We woke up from our dreams sullen;

Being moody is self-irritating;

You get angry with everything and everyone;

It’s either you’re angry that the sun is shining so bright;

Or you’re angry that the sun is being lazy with its rays;


You don’t feel like talking to anyone;

But you’re also angry that no one;

Is making the effort to talk to you;


You feel hungry;

But you don’t feel for any meal;

You talk in low tones feeling tired to speak up;

And get irritated that no one can hear what you say;


You get jealous that others are happy;

When you’re feeling your worst;

You want others to give you space;

Then get sad that they are ignoring you;


You try to wallow in self-pity;

But even the pity party is exhausting;

You want to cry but the tears elude you;

You try to dwell on the bad things you’ve endured;

But it doesn’t really work;

Because you’ve already had enough closure on them;


Catching the moody flu is inevitable;

No matter how merry the night before was;

It could stare you in the face the next morning;

But it will surely pass;

Just don’t break anything;

Or say anything regrettable;

And blame it on the mood;

As certain words and actions are inexcusable.


How’s your mood today?

Wishing you the best and brightest of moods! ☺

    Wallowing in self pity is so bad, I try to avoid it. I remember a video with Stephen fry talking about it, was very illuminating.
