Why Worry Others


Why bother other people with... Our problems in this life?
... When they must bear their equal share... Of struggle
and of strife?... Why add our worries to their own?... They
have enough to do... To shelter, feed and clothe themselves
... And seek horizons new... It is all right to ask advice
... When we are undecided... But as for desperation, well
... We ought to try to hide it... For when we pour our
troubles out... It really means that we... Are hoping for
our rescue through... Some act of charity... So let us have
the courage now... To strive for our success... The more
we do ourselves, the more... Will be our happiness.
