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.
A Country Song
If you spend any time in the mountains it doesn’t take very long
After turning on the radio to hear a country and western song.
Country music is often as sweet as listening to the birds
Not only can you catch the beat but you understand the words.
Country music has recurring themes at least from what I hear
For instance if you sing about a tractor, it’s got to be John Deere.
