The worry which always consumes the mind;
subtle, insidious, creeping on you.
It is the grey dread settling within,
leaching color and draining all the life;
leaving you closed off, worried, and pensive.
It dominates your life, demanding all–
the one and only focus of your world.
Yes, there is beauty in that grey,
but it’s a lonely and stark existence.
For the beauty is consumed by worry,
leaving the world forever bare therein.
Don’t be consumed by what lies at the heart,
nor ignore the beauty in all that grey.
View the worry for what it is–smile.
