I Don't Worry

Return to Essays & Poems index

I don't worry but you do
You worry about me
You worry about what I think
It worries me that you worry

But otherwise I don't worry
If you didn't worry about me
I would stop worrying about you
Worrying about me

You worry about others
You worry about what they think
You worry about what they might be feeling
But they don't worry about you

And they don't worry about themselves
And they don't feel what you worry they feel
And they don't think what you worry they think
And they don't know you worry

Unless you tell them
Which you sometimes do
And then they worry
Like you
