Don'T Tell Me Nothing Ain'T Worth Something - Poem by Cecelia Weir

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain't Worth Something.
The more I work
The less I have.
The lesser I have
The harder I have to work.

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain't Worth Something.
Just when I got use
To the Nothing I already had.
Then here comes a new nothing
To make my first nothing not so bad.

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain't Worth Something.
The more of the new nothing
On my mind that I've got.
I wish for the first nothing
That no longer seems like a lot.

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain't worth Something.
For this new nothing got me
Where I don' know how to begin.
And it just keeps on coming
Like trouble will never end.

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain't Worth Something.
The groanings and pains
The worries and sleepless nights.
The cares of its conclusions
The things I took too light.

Don't Tell Me Nothing
Ain'Worth Something.
When its all I wish I had
And if someone else
Has this same type of nothing
Well honey I sho' ain't mad.
