Your not broken, your human.

We are all a little broken,

In one way or another,

We hide the cracks behind smiles

We keep it under cover.


For we are taught as children,

That being strong is the aim

But they don’t tell you that strength

Is about learning to deal with pain.

For life is a series

Of ups and downs.

Life is full of excitement and love,

But also some sadness and downs.

Mental health affects us all,

In one way or another.

It could be you, your cousin,

Your dad or even your brother.

So this week,

Let’s remember, all those who struggle

And reach out a hand,

And be there for one another.
