“Worry Not, Child” A Poem

Worry Not, Child (12/30/15)

Worry not,


For that is what you are

A child


Yes yes,

I heard you state your age

You have proven my point

That is the age and mindset

Of a child


So trust me

When I say

Worry not

For you have your entire life

Ahead of you


Now, don’t twist my words into YOLO

Make sure you study hard

Don’t do drugs

Eat healthy


But stress too much

Over things that won’t matter in five years

Don’t worry if they’re truly the one

Don’t cry over the economy


Worry not,



Continue to be

A child
