Worry - Poem by Avalin Locke

Tears of mistake fall into your hands
I tell you 'let them go' but you won't know where they land
You shouldn't worry about that anyhow
All you really need to worry about is here right now

You shouldn't worry about tomorrow
You should worry about today
Who really cares what happens anyways

Mistakes are made
Promises are broken
But they should always be thought of as one extra token
When you worry about tomorrow
You waste your life away
Why worry about tomorrow
When you should worry about today
No one worries about the past anyways
