Worrying is something that happens in our heads

and then like an unexpected downpour

seeps into our emotional well being

like an oily sludge that inhibits the normal tempo of life.

The number of worries is counted using a simple mathematical formula

like the arithmetic we teach in Kindergarten.

We can list the worries and then count them

like we are counting the steps we must climb to get to our beds.

Worrying is an addiction and is a repetitive process

like sneezing when you have a cold

or waking in the early morning hours to go to the toilet

or turning on the alarm to wake for work.

Even though the worries come and go like the cycle of the moon

we can earn our freedom and recognize when we are bystanders

and use a prescription of ownership as a test

for who should be in command of the worry.
