No Worries: Spoken Word
So everyone’s talking about their achievements and goals,
their plans and dreams that did unfold
their lives, their joys and things the that they learnt
and how it turned all perfect for them.
But there you are wondering and pondering:
confused, you seem lost and battered
your hopes and dreams on the ground shattered
you thought your story would be much greater and better.
Can I please have this moment with you?
I’d like to share a word or two
I need you listen and carefully listen
to what I have to say to you.
Your life is different and so is your race:
the fact that you live speaks volumes of grace.
Don’t compare your journey to others, you have no clue what theirs is about,
be grateful for all you have and the good times you’ve experienced.
I know you had great plans and dreams:
you thought by now they’d all come to be
But let me assure you, the journey has only started—
all you need is a moment of patience
Eventually when it happens you’d be glad you waited.
Even though it may not come out as you’ve always expected:
It may be greater or it may be less
but whatever it is, you’d be glad and be blessed.
Contentment is golden and so also is silence
but when success comes, his voice is the loudest.
No need to be weighed down, no need to cry
Joy is coming and she is close by.

About No Worries
No Worries is a spoken word poetry that seeks to encourage those who seem to have been let down by certain circumstances in life. It is for those who are struggling to keep up, to breathe, to make things happen but feel like they aren’t moving forward because they feel left out. The reason being that those around them seem to be ahead of them.
The poet is aware of this problem and reminds them that everyone is on a journey and each is different from the other. Everyone (regardless of how and what they feel) is exactly where they ought to be. Instead of comparing our lives to others, we ought to be grateful for life and all that we have.
In the end, we’ll appreciate every moment including those that seemed to be delays or disappointments and we’ll be glad we waited.
