avoiding issues

to stay out of trouble
best avoid problems as such
in my opinion, though humble
this distinction matters much

problems prove dependent
they can't exist on their own
and need to a certain extent
a spirit they consider home

once they find a recipient
issues settle in your mind
and bother you, persistent
the nasty buggers, i find

problems grow on worries
and feed on stress as nutrient
there they show the tendency
to be annoyingly patient

to prevent a problem invasion
and protect your upbeat mood
respect a simple causation
to not let this fuckers root
