Why Waste Your Time On Worry, Stress And Woe

Why waste your time on worry stress and woe
For life is brief and time quickly ticks away
And why stress yourself about things you cannot change
Since worrying leaves you looking old and gray.

The billionaire does find it hard to sleep at night
Of a stock market collapse he does live in fear
He is not a very happy man at all
Despite his billions that does seem sad to hear.

The ageing woman worries about her health
She has not been feeling at all well of late
She may as well make the most of the time she has left
And enjoy life since time on none does wait.

Why waste your time in worrying about life
For worrying never seems to change a thing
You may as well be happy whilst you may
And enjoy your life and dance and laugh and sing.
