Worry, Worry in My Head

Worry rears its ugly head, tormenting me night and day.
Uncertainty becomes a hamster’s wheel,
as my mind spins thoughts around.
Fear jolts me awake,
Disquiet thoughts fill the dark silence of the night.
My mind engages like the alarm on the clock radio,
flooding my brain with its nagging chatter.
Circular thoughts become a song I cannot get out of my head,
an ear worm, slowing driving me insane.
It’s hard to let go of these uneasy thoughts,
but I must accept that I have done all that I can.
The rest is up to fate.
I will bid these distressing thoughts adieu,
I will cast them out, set them adrift
like paper sail boats on a pond.
