Words to Live by (free verse)

LAUGH, YOU IDIOT! LAUGH OR ELSE!

DON’T GET ANGRY—
BE A HERO AND A LOYAL HELLHOUND.
SAVE YOUR ANGER FOR WHEN IT’S ACTUALLY NEEDED;
DIRECT IT TOWARDS SOMEBODY WHO ACTUALLY DESERVES IT:
A LEGITIMATE ENEMY.

DON’T WHINE—
IT’S UNMANLY AND ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING.

DON’T JUDGE OTHERS—
YOU DON’T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THEM, AND IT MAKES YOU LOOK BAD.

REMEMBER WHAT ALEISTER SAYS:
“THE MAGICIAN MUST CONSIDER EVERY EVENT IN HIS LIFE AN ACT OF GOD.”
(I’M PARAPHRASING)

REMEMBER:
YOU’LL BE DEAD IN MAYBE 15 YEARS SO MAKE THE MOST OF IT.

BE STRONG,
BE LOYAL,
BE HEROIC;
BE KIND,
BE GENTLE,
BE COMPASSIONATE.

LIVE FOR FAMILY,
LIVE FOR FRIENDS,
LIVE FOR COWORKERS,
LIVE FOR BOSSES—
LIVE TO SERVE THEM,
BE THERE FOR THEM;
MAKE SURE THEY CAN COUNT ON YOU,
AND DON’T LET THEM DOWN.

AND LAUGH, YOU IDIOT! LAUGH OR ELSE!


I'm not into free verse, but I jotted these words down some time ago. I recite them everyday when I get up, and just thought I'd share by turning it into a poem. They were mainly conceived to help combat anger. So whaddaya think?

Also, anybody have magical means for anger management?
