Self Reproof
Happiness, what is it? 
The day's tiredness fading.

For that silly feeling, you want to ruin
my memories? Even a worm 

squirms when stepped on. 
Remember when I yelled at you, when you touched

my stuff? Don't be good to me anymore.
I'll keep feeling bad for you. For

the day you have to eat that fast food, 
the day you have to drink that supplemental fiber.

Always the chorus, never the solo. 
Wearing shoes that hurt your feet. 

They say, if you feel bad, just get better.
Live comfortably and raise fruit.
