Worries and You---A Poem of Hope
When yesterday's a worry and tomorrow's a concern
When your sometimes feeling trapped and there seems no where to turn
Just look into the mirror and ask the person there
Why they're treating you so badly and why they're so unfair
You have always tried to do what's right and do your very best
But that person in the mirror just won't give you any rest
In the morning, in the afternoon, and even late at night
They're always staring back at you and making you uptight
If you really listen to your heart then you will truly know
That the only way to deal with things so they won't make you low
is to take your worries, one by one, and tackle them with zest
But don't forget, it's really true, you can only do your best
If yesterday has been unkind and tomorrow scares you so
Then seize today and just hold on and you won't feel so low
In dealing with your worries it's easier, I know,
To deal with things ,as they come, than letting worries grow
In closing let me offer an encouraging word or two
In dealing with that person looking back at you
Whether early in the morning or even late at night
Remember who your looking at and you won't get so uptight
For inside every one of us there's a little give and take
So stand up straight, stare right back....................and give yourself a break!
