Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #1 "It's Not My Fault, I Used To Say” – Male & Female versions)

(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

Please read the Section II male version, or female version, of this poem first; then read this version.

It's Not My Fault, I Used To Say

It's not my fault, I used say
The reason I'm the person I am today.
It's not my fault, if I was abused.
It's in the past, I'm no longer confused.

The government's not taking away my rights.
Worrying about hate groups no longer keeps me up nights.
All those gangs roaming the streets, it is a crime.
My kids need my love, they need my time.

I will make time for me.
Oh, dear heaven, did you hear how I used to plea?
I'm in control, I no longer sing the blues.
I now choose not to watch the nightly news.

The use of drugs, was not the cause,
I've fixed my personality and all my flaws.
That's not the one. Japan's not to blame.
Playing the victim is no longer my game.

They closed down the factory; a temporary cloud,
Whatever my name, I will wear it proud.
Space aliens do not control my brain.
I'll do it, even it it's going to rain.

The radical left and the radical right
Have no control over whether or not I fight.
Go back to school? I'm never too old.
I will never again be left out in the cold.

If I'm in a dead-end job I'll just get out.
"I can help myself", I just want to shout.
I will get the things that I need.
I know the way to succeed.

Not everyone can be a super star.
I'll find a way to travel both near and far.
Off to see distant lands;
Anything's possible, I'll start making plans.

I'll find the people who really care,
Life does not have to be so unfair.
I no longer fear failure so I will succeed,
I'll follow no one when I can lead.

I do not feel shackled, imprisoned, condemned;
I don't need a savior and I'll find a friend.
‘But, it's not my fault’, I'll never again say;
I will deal with the way things are today.

This is how I feel, with complete control.
Being a victim can sure take its toll.
I won't feel drained at the end of the day.
Not being a victim is the only way.

What a nice feeling it is to be
Taking complete responsibility;
Not for what happens to me, but for the fact
That I can control the way I react.

I look at things differently, though;
I know the limits of what I control;
I understand that no one controls how I feel.
I will determine what's false and what's real.

(An Original Poem by Mel Kaye)

I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
  • Refer back to the "Section (II)" "Comments" and write how you will never allow yourself to feel like a victim again.
    • How does this make you feel?

Mr. Kaye - You're absolutely right - atTITude is everything! And ANYTHING is possible - just look at me! I sure do appreciate your uplifting words of encouragement and will be back again for more.

With comments. ;)

Welcome to my world. It's a nice place, even if I do say so myself. Thanks for the nice comments.

I hope I wasn't too hard on you with mine.

Hey Mel,

Congratulations: this is a marvellous poem!!! :)

I know what you mean when you say that I must know what I control, when to control it; but mostly I have to know when I do not control things (if one can cope with this, one finds one of the keys to a successful life lol).

I am not a victim, I never was and I will never be one. In fact I have a problem with people who victimise themselves, it just gets on my nerves (I know I must be tolerant, but still...).

This first installment is so so good that it lifted my spirit even higher: thank you, Mel :). I am curious about the next one :).

Congratulations: what a great start!

I knew that you would like it. The main difference with Section III and Section II is OWNERSHIP.

Marja said...

Mel this is very good. I like it. Just I can't help thinking about my children in the children's home who are so much disadvantaged in every area. it does make an enormous difference from were you start out. I had much more advantages than they do and they need all the help they can get to get that esteem were you talking about.

Monday Morning Power said...

You are absolutely right. I am all about developing a positive mental attitude and taking control of you life. Having said that, there are some that con only, for the time being, take control of their attitude because of what life has thrown at them. By having the right attitude, when the opportunity presents itself they will be ready. I know, it's a LOT easier said than done.

Kim said...
