What a choice to make at dawn!
Should I worry or not?
Should I worry or not? Just which should I do?
Which way should I choose, I have not got a clue.
Should I stay calm and serene, give a big smile?
Show that all is well, at least for a short while.
Or should I worry about what I’ve forgot?
Show everyone that I have lost the plot?
Not an easy choice in this new day that I see,
So let’s just choose between a coffee or tea.
What use is worrying? What would it achieve?
What benefit would the world or I receive?
I know that everything may not be right,
But does that mean I should worry and take flight?
Just what good would it do if I let fear win?
So with a touch of calmness, this day will begin.
Who knows, my worry’s may yet all fade away,
Dissolved by calmness as I walk through this day.
