I used to worry often, of anything coming up.
My mind tried to think of every bad scenario.
View from different angles, of what might happen,
And what I might do best to not make it so.
I would ruminate about anything,
Even if my time spent was all for naught.
But if you despair – remember the prior times:
It was never as bad as you thought.
The best thing to do, is to keep yourself busy.
It will keep your mind occupied tonight.
And busy-ness can physically exhaust you,
Making you sleep easier this night.
