Why worry when you can't control

Why cry oh boy!
Why cry at night,
Don't bother what they say,
Just do what you feel is right.

Time will move on,
So will they.
You are to live your choice,
All the way.

Why fear oh boy!
Why fear your choice?
If you are certain of it,
Then it isn't a choice

If you can't control,
Why then worry thinking it.
If you know what is coming,
Why then worry fearing it.

Sleep oh boy!
Just sleep in peace,
Life is too short,
To break it in piece.

In very few but powerful words you have given the most valuable insight of how life should be lived.The flair and rhyme with which you decorated your message was very nicely done...Loved it from start to finish.

Very good. I liked it. Your poem kind of reminded me of the song Hush My Darling or In The Jungle or whatever it's called because your going through stages and... yeah. Well, that's just what it reminded me of. :{D Very well done, great job.

Thank you very much for this poem. This is very wonderfully written and yeah, it was very inspirational. You chose your words carefully and I am glad that someone like you, a very gifted and talented poet, could write in such very few words but managed to express what he really feels. Keep up the good work.

XOXO,
Liza R.

Good poem, I'm not usually int poetry, but this had great, catchy rythm and really drew me in because it's so easy to relate to it, life and makin desiscons is something we all have to do, and there is always a certain fear that will take you down the wrong path :) great, powerful stuff :)

Loved it. It was really simple, but powerful... I loved the message, too. It would make a good song... Good job on this.
