Untie From Those Worries
Untie from those worries,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
That you've got.
Twisting to tighten,
A mind already blocked by knots.
Let go and undo,
A dropping to stop...
What is pointless to continue.
Serving nonsense in your life,
Only invites others to dump theirs.
And many with baggage are gladly to share,
An unloading off their backs...
On someone else who is willing,
To become attached like that.
As if immuned from stress and depression.
Refuse to prove you can be the warrior.
Or another hero to be quickly forgotten.
Since such good deeds,
Are rarely reminisced to miss.
To remember who it was expressing concern,
About the weight of burdens carried by others.
