Poem

Take a walk,
Forget time and place
Walk over the bridge
Feel  fear fill your body
And the heart in your throat

Stop the thoughts
From running wild
Put on some music
And forget the world
Just for a little while

Let your mind go
To its happy place
Smile, please don’t cry
This life is not bad
It’s not bad at all

Let your shoulders down
You’re too young to worry
Forget your troubles
Things will fall into place
And don’t worry it will all be okay

Poem

Monsters

You can check your closet;
You can check under your bed
But you won’t find any monsters.

The monsters live in your head.
They take many shapes and many forms.
They keep you from sleep and –
Give you nightmares instead of dreams.

The monsters are what you fear the most.
They are your imagination.
They know how to scare you.

What keeps the monsters at bay?
What keeps the monsters away?

Poem

Do not turn away from fear
Do not hide away your tears
Follow the empty path
It will take you where you wish to go
Show your strength, your weakness, your fear
It’s time to live and wipe your tears
