I Am Not To Worry

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
(Lao Tzu)


It is so easy
To get away from tenderness
Getting busy and hungry
Losing myself in accomplishing
Yet, without fail
I notice the lack of calm
The heaviness that arises
When I am out of my center
It is clear now
That I am not to worry
As Life will always show me
That it is time to go back in
To find my true strength
I know this is no race
And the door will never be closed
It is clear now
That I am not to worry
As a flower
I naturally know
When to open
And when to close
