Shaking Hands


By Josie Whitehead

Make That Change

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!

Good Luck with your change and don't worry.  Josie
