Worrying

Like strong surging water worrying
Seeks to drive Joy and Peace away,
It throws parties for Depression and Self-pity,
And gladly the duo fix what should or should not be

Worrying clenches open palms,
It crashes great resolutions,
Reconfigures good dreams,
And creates for the mind, fatal walls

Like calm and still waters,
Mindfulness pays no heed to life’s turbulence
It gathers fruits of peace and joy
When Life teach one to fight none of her battles;
Blessing the patient and those who hope faithfully,
Teaching how contentment value lesser gold,
How self control and temperance may avoid worrying
Even in loneliest days and darkest of nights
