Lest


Lest the outcome be
In peril inside we dwell
On futile worry

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Worrying does not make the outcome any better or any worse. Still it is part of our human nature to worry and to think of the negative first. Experience in living life will in time teach us to learn to mix in the positive.
