Worries Never End


There is always a statement to be made
A word to be spoken
A story to be told
And a tale to reflect about

There is always a time to recover
A distance to be covered
A problem to worry about
And an issue to think about

Always, there is a prayer to be made
Something to wish for
And a hope to live for

There is always a song to be sung
A tune to dance to
A game to be played
And a chance to be grabbed

There is a tear to be sobbed
A pain to be nursed
A day to live for
Another to be wasted
And an effort to be made

Yet, there is no time for regrets
For hopelessness
Or pardons

For-
Destiny isn't a place
Neither a target nor a time
But visions and dreams,
Ambitions
Fantasies of yesterday
Hopes and dreams for tomorrow
Failures and achievements of today
Shapes our most desired destiny

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
