‘Ode to attitudes and worries’

It scares me so

That life will go

And I won’t get a chance

To even glance

At everything I would love to taste

 

It scares me so

That I will grow

Out of being me

Before I can even see

It coming

 

It scares me so

That I will lose my flow

Lose what I love

And heaven above

Won’t give it back

 

It bugs me so

That you don’t want to know

Me before you start judging

Or even grudging

What I have

 

It bugs me so

That everything will go

So fast

Like a blast

If I enjoy it

 

It bugs me so

That you can end up so low

And it’s so much easier

Than the busier

Way to holiness

 

I enjoy it so

That I can throw

All of the above

Away to get lost in what I love

– In careless song and dance
