The Man who Always Worried

There once was a man who was always worried,

Who would fidget and fret, who was never hurried,

Who never ended projects because he’d never begin,

Who forfeited the prospect of loss and the chance of win.

 

This man was never happy, as he never had fun,

But the man was always safe, so the argument’s begun:

Is it better to take no losses, take no risk, and take no gain?

Or to try and work it out, take the chance, pay or pain?

  1. “Is it better to take no losses, take no risk, and take no gain?

    Or to try and work it out, take the chance, pay or pain?”

    A good question we all ask ourselves. Great poem!

  2. The risk adverse creature in me loved this line:

    “Is it better to take no losses, take no risk, and take no gain?
    Or to try and work it out, take the chance, pay or pain?”

    I battle this question daily. It’s who I am by nature, but not really who I want to be. Thanks for sharing your poem!
