This a story about Mr. Pete he's the meanest person that you ever will meet.
He always yells and calls people names everyone thinks he is really insane.
Everyday he'll sit on his stoop looking at people and saying I hates you.
Mr. Pete is lonely and mean and the people who see him start to scream.
So one day a lady so kind and sweet came up and talked to Mr. Pete.
Mr. Pete she started to say you need to learn to change your ways.
Not only for you but for everyone else you dont realize your the hated man in town.
Mr. Pete gets up out of his seat and in his own words he started to speak.
I know I'm not a really nice guy but when I think of my wife I start to cry.
My hate towards people keeps it inside because I know a real man dont cry.
A real man does cry for the ones that he loves and dont ever let anyone tell you its wrong.
The sweet old lady told Mr. Pete you need to start letting your feelings fly free.
For if you dont you'll die alone in this old and rusty home.
Then Mr. Pete wipped his eye and without holding it in he started to cry.
I been so mean for all these years and people hate me and start get scared.
Mr. Pete made a pat that he would always be nice and never be mad.
So now Mr. Pete is no longer mean and everyone loves Mr. Pete
