Worrying’s a Futile Exercise


Can worrying solve a problem in our life?
Worrying can cause ill-health to mind and heart;
Today’s worries are much more than enough;
Let’s not worry about what future brings!

Worrying can upset equilibrium of mind;
You can’t decide a thing with clarity;
A worried man cannot achieve a thing;
Worrying is wasting precious time in life.

Worrying can’t help you climb life’s ladder fast;
Worries can make a trivial stress look big;
Worrying impedes your performance a lot;
A worried person cannot enjoy life.

Worrying’s a futile exercise in time;
You can’t move forward in a sphere of life;
Only a fool will keep on worrying self;
Worrying does not help you to progress well.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
