Worries and You---A Poem of Hope

Updated on April 12, 2012

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!
