Ups and Downs

I can hope for better things to come
or I can cope with what I already have.
I can dream a thousand dreams,
most will never come through
or I can scream my lungs out
at my lack of accomplishments.
I can be happy today when it matters
or I can be snappy everyday
and take away the joys of each day.

I can look around with envy in my eyes
or I can work hard for what I want.
I can complain about everything bad in my life
or I can learn to appreciate the little things
that eventually adds up to something great.
