The Folly of Worry by Raymond A. Foss
Only indigestion
discomfort, blood pressure
not much more
does our worry produce

The folly of worry
that we could fix anything
that an hour would be gained
from the sum of our days

Nothing worthy
in the weight of worry
only bringing us pain
without any reward

Only in turning
our cares over
can we find peace
in the arms of the Lord
