Worry be Gone

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Recalling days of wistful thought,

when burdens found are freed and aught,

be left behind at worries door,

for burdens kept are misery more.

It is we, who fashion those metal cells,

within which we limit our lives as well,

by taking the pain of acceptance ache,

instead of patience and responsibility take.

For all will pass in time and free,

a soul enslaved to worry be,

as life unfolds and lessons learned,

we can overcome and strife discern.

Worry can be the death of us,

and for what, an ulcer a stroke a speeding bus,

with minds displaced from potential hurt,

we walk right in and create alert.

Worry just like any challenge in life,

if it’s taken that way will determine plight,

as just another bump on the road,

that births a new circumstance in tow.

So in the end no harm is done,

and we survive under a constant sun,

with pain or not, it’s up to us,

to free that worry and accept it just.

Tony. In admiration for a beautifully written poem about 'worry.' I will now go back and read it again. Maybe someone can make a spray, "Worry Be Gone?" Blessings, Debby
