Oh dontcha worry, worry me.
dontcha hurry, hurry me.
Who cares what time it is
when thee climate is
warm as the tropical seeeea..?

The truth was certain as morning light.
Girl was sharing her first days in sobriety.
So many worries,
so many hurries,
she thought never bright to ever see.
Just been fired
oh! so tired
deeply mired in
Sponsor-Peep said, "Simmer down, Babe.
You needn't worry no more.
Give all your worrying over to
me, your sponsor, Lenore.
Stay sober Girl. Stop that head-whirl."
Following is a quote (no 'poeticizing'),
as in "She then told us..."
"So I went home, and my drunk boyfriend
asked me wasn't I worried with no job?
I told him, 'NO! Lenore is worrying about that!'"
It is sometimes this way with God and me.
Asking Him to take my problems for a day, or even
a few hours. I try to reverently, lovingly say aloud
His Sweet Holy Name over and over.
At once!--true, Peeps--I am gifted with semblances
of serenity, peace, then joy! When my body and mind
are settled, I take back my **issues** (hate that word!)
and in a different light they seem.
Telling you this happens is easy.
Challenge is for you to try it also.
May not work for everyone.
But isn't it better than wallowing in the mire?
