All Worries for Nothing: A Humorous Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Sorry to remind you of your mortal status

it was not meant to be point of this story

but life has to come to that last hiatus

not ending only fun, but also worry.

How is it fair that after an expertise achieved

after all that practice of worrying and fuss

we end up so surprised and deceived

with no dreaded crap befalling us.

So there we are, a bunch of old geezers

at end of our rope all wrinkled and sterile

pale and fragile as if came from freezers

but so proud to have avoided every peril.

For, life was full of threats, from ills to disasters

and getting ready with worry was a thing to do

and that's how we became worrying masters

though ruining happiness and health too.

So, what's really the deal with this addiction

with this abuse of our morbid imagination

for it's nothing else but the mind's fiction

sabotaging joy and our healthy elation.

Let's think for the moment about that last day

and memories of crap that never took place

and just consider how much we could delay

all the crappy aging worry put on our face.
