Why Worry

Day 23 April P-A-D prompt:  Write a quit doing what you're doing poem.

Worry?  Why?
How does it help?
   And who?
Does it stop wars,
   Cure disease?
Does it prevent the drought
   Or stop the seas?
Does it keep a child
   From foolishly erring?
Does it stop the moron
   From drinking and driving,
      Destroying too many lives?
If worry could heal,
If worry could change the tides,
     Still the winds,
        Stop the ground from moving.
If worry could protect the child
     From harm and suffering,
        Keep fools from causing pain,


     Worry?   Why?

  1. Good advice, well delivered. Now, if only I could follow it. :)

    Thanks so much for participating in my latest Limerick-Off!

  2. It was my pleasure. :) I'm a lot better about the worrying thing than I used to be, but it still sneaks up on me from time to time, especially when there's danger of harm to family.
