My neighbour

I admire my neighbour,

He is not attractive,

He doesn’t have a job,

He dresses in the same clothes everyday,

He looks confused all the time,

But I still admire him,

He is the happiest person I know,

He smiles all the time,

Sometimes he talks to himself,

He looks so content with life,

I always want a share of that feeling,

When all I do is worry about getting a good job,

I worry about meeting deadlines,

I worry about what I will wear,

Even though I have very few choices,

I worry about what I will eat,

I even worry about national security,

I worry about famine and drought in my country,

I just want to be like my neighbour sometimes,

Stop the worry that consumes me.
