Why Worry?

worried smiley face

What good does it do
except hang around
like super glue
causing nothing but
jitters in the belly
upsetting the gut

Your head’s a tornado
spinning
up a storm
Confusion
Concern
Anxiety
aren’t the norm

Emotions pour out
with implacable power
Oh, how you wish
the tempest would cower

What good does it do
besides make us blue?

By writing this doesn’t mean I never worry,
in fact, it seems there is more reason for it, lately.
But I think we all know it does no good.
So here’s to moving forward with Hope,
Faith and Optimism. 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by
and have a wonderful day! ♥

  1. All so true! But we don’t seem to be able to stop ourselves do we? “Worry” is my default setting I think! I do try to work on it but usually to no avail. Great poem Lauren ❤️ Xx

    • No we don’t, Chris, and lately, worry has been default setting, too! 🙂 Not good for either of us! We just have to work harder; occupy our minds with other happy thoughts! Thanks for your complement, too! ♥ xo

    • Aww…Diane, I hope you’re okay..I can certainly understand how worrying about what might happen is so easily done, but I pray you can find some peace and I’m always here if you need someone to talk to…thank you for your kind complement, too…Hugs! ♥

  2. Most encouraging poetic expression,dear Lauren ! Who is going to stop this horrendous monster that eats up our life and poisons our days ? Your poetry is a very effective remedy …
