Ditch Them One By One.
Are you looking at your demons?
Getting lost in all your fears
Do you have so many of them?
Do they bring you close to tears?
Well, when they come a rising
And you’re helpless like a stick
All tossed upon the ocean
And your mind is kind of sick.
Then set your mind to thinking
What be the point of worry?
Especially when things can’t be changed
It isn’t worth the flurry.
For worry eats into your soul
And rips your mind to bits
There is no good in that at all
You can be sure of it.
Picture you, when you are worried
About an up and coming thing.
Your nerves all tight, and tense, and taut
With your heart, and everything.
Just going like a pack of bulls
All pounding up the track.
The weight of all these foolish burdens
Could put you on your back.
So think of what you’re fretting for
And ask yourself this thing.
And when you’ve answered truthfully
Then too this truth just cling.
Is there any time but ‘here right now?’
When all be said and done.
Then all your many fears and worries
Just ditch them one by one.
