Jim Yerman Poems
Don'T Worry, Be Happy
We live in a world that doesn’t slow down, it’s seems everyone’s in a hurry
Which causes us lots of stress, lots of anxiety, and an abundance of worry.
We worry about money, our health, our children, we worry about being late
We worry about getting older, about our jobs and gaining weight.
I imagine amidst all this hustle, all this bustle, all this hapless hurrying
There are even people out there who worry about worrying!
Worrying can be debilitating, it can be an enemy and a curse
And everyone knows telling someone not to worry, only makes it worse.
Faces Of Courage
I saw him on the evening news, the soldier in his hospital bed
Whom everyone thought unconscious and unable to move his head.
But Corporal Hargis was awake…in fact he was astute
For when he was given his Purple Heart he found the strength to salute.
Thank you Corporal Hargis for your courage helps keep the rest of us free.
But your story got me to thinking about all the faces of courage I see.
