Stop! Don't Get Bored Get Excited

Updated on January 2, 2014

This Is Not A How To

This is a why do

Boredom is an awful thing

It catches your eye and hurts more than a bee sting

It slowly numbs your brain

Then you believe nothing is worth a hill of beans

I say phoey

Don't listen to those who say they know everything

It's time to let the bird out

Send it into the marvelous world

Free at last

To do what it always wanted

No more cage to keep it closed in

It was time

Now look around you and pick one thing that interests you

It's not hard

It is quite easy

Start doing what you love

You will see the fire in your eyes

The burning desire

One that no one can ever take away

It trickles down your body like running water

Soon your whole body is in the spirit

Doing something you won't regret

Feelings that make life interesting and a lot more fun

Than reading this part story / part poem

So you have heard this line

Make it a good day

I will tell you to do so much better

Make it a great day

One you will never forget

One that will keep you wanting for more

So find a friend and do something together

Go to your room and do it all by yourself

The thing that matters

Is that you leave boredom behind

And when you feel this way again

Run, jump or shake

Do whatever it takes

Find the one thing in life that you are good at

Teach someone else

Watch and be amazed

How your gifts and talents could of been wasted

But weren't

Because you alone found it in yourself

To be that someone special

That very few people knew

Someone we all can be proud of

Give back to the world

I once knew someone just like you

Who easily got bored

When they had nothing to do

They turned their day around

They got one idea

Followed it through

Let their ideas flow

Rolled the world into a ball and now we all call it

The globe

      Excellent advice. Boredom is like a bottomless pit, but there is no need to jump in.
