Why Do I Worry?

Late night thoughts consume me.
There's a pounding in my head.
I try to clear my mind as I lay here in bed.
I worry that I won't be happy,
I worry about my future,
I worry about what people think of me,
I worry about worrying.
I'm tired all the time because my mind never rests.
What is it like to rest peacefully?
To not have a worry in every breath you take,
To not have a heart that continuously aches.
I just want to live my life in the light,
But it's hard to do this
When I can't see the end in sight.
