It’s Time to Change...

For the challenging teenager
Who should control his aggression;
When perhaps he needs to learn
To talk about tension.

It’s Time to Change...

For the dramatic girl
Who’s always seeking attention;
When maybe she’s in need
Of greater comprehension.

It’s Time to Change...

For the silent father
Who never expresses his fears;
And needs to be told he’s no less manly
For shedding those tears.

It’s Time to Change...

For the perfectionist mum
Who’s scared to admit she’s struggling;
And needs to know others also battle
With their daily juggling.

It’s Time to Change...

For the lonely pensioner
Who drifts from day to day;
And just needs to be reminded
He can also have his say.

It’s Time to Change...

For the powerful CEO
Who daren’t drop her mask;
And chooses deadlines over health
To complete every single task.

It’s Time to Change...

For the stressed out colleague
Who frowns from nine to five;
And needs to rediscover the joy
Of simply being alive.
It’s Time to Change...

For the terrified student
Who drowns fears in cheap wine;
And needs to be reassured
It’s okay to not be fine.

It’s Time to Change...

For anyone who feels their life
Doesn’t fit social norms;
And needs to be encouraged
To be them and not conform.

It’s Time to Change...

And for the ever-smiling friend
Quick to answer desperate calls;
When perhaps he is the one
Who needs the most help of all.

It’s Time to Change...

Let’s look beyond the surface,
Let’s not assume we know;
Let’s reach out to others
And allow empathy to flow.
