the worry wort

4 Nov

the worry wort creates problems

where there aren’t any

the worry wort hears slights

within an innocent remark

and takes offense

from what is actually his own

paranoia

the worry wort worries about worrying

knowing that worry never

solved anything

and yet

he can’t stop nagging at himself

picking at himself

denying himself

that happiness

which is within his grasp
