By Josie Whitehead

When feelings tell you things are wrong,

     And your future seems unclear,

You’re the one who’s at your helm!

     There’s nothing you should fear.


Don’t worry, keep your level head.

     Don’t let things get you down.

Put on that smile, push cares aside

    And ditch that gloomy frown.


Tomorrow is another day;

    Next week has yet to come

And often, in those years ahead,

    I think you'll feel less glum.


But why not make that change right now

    And walk into the light?

We sometimes only see what’s wrong

    When there's so much that’s right.


If necessary, ask for help:

    Folk love to give advice

And sharing problems helps a lot,

     Which surely is quite nice!


There’s one thing that’s for certain,

    We’ve all had fears, for sure,

But tomorrow, with that change in mind,

    Step through a different door!
