Do you sit by the phone for news?
or while away the days wondering?
Do you make promises with a God,
or do you send divine messages to the universe?
Do you deny there is a problem?
Or make sure the whole world knows?
Do you sit in silence praying?
Or do you scream and shout and cry?
Do you stay awake at night?
Or sleep but wake up early?
Do you drink to forget,
only to wake and remember?
When a worry takes control,
of your every waking thought,
can you function quite normally,
or do you have to take time out?
I myself I worry quietly,
stay awake, and cry alone,
but regardless how I worry,
tomorrow always comes.
If I was given tomorrow today,
If I could see what it will bring,
Would I be brave enough to face it,
Would I really want to know?
I think I’d rather not,
for at least as I sit here today,
my friend “Hope” is still beside me,
and that helps to keep my worries at bay.
