Worry

Rating: 4.6
She worries about
everything,
real and imagined.
'What if this? What if that? '
I watched my
Mom
worry herself right
into the
grave one disastrous
December night.
She doesn't care.
She wants me to
worry right along
with her.
And when I don't,
she
gets pissed off.
My Dad used to say,
'They can kill us,
but they can't eat us.'
I share this with her.
Nothing!
Just
worry, worry, worry.

They can kill us, but they can't eat us.' I share this with her. Nothing! Just worry, worry, worry... for it is a terrible psychological problem.... for some it is compulsive tendency to worry. but these are facts..... but worry does not change anything. it eats up our inner peace..... a very nice poem. an unusual theme.... you hve picked up to write a poetry...... thank you very much dear poet. tony

Lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned with insight. Worrying is a mental torture which can be curtailed if one learns to take things and situations in stride. A nice poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Mothers have been known to be worrisome about so many things about the younger members of the family as well as the senior ones. Hundred and one thoughts occupying her attention which again is the outcome of worry. Very emotional memoir.
