The hurdle facing all of us

May is Mental Health Month, so here is how I view my mental health challenge.
What’s the biggest worry, in your life today

Does it bother you at night and is it here to stay

Have you ever had that feeling, deep inside your heart

You’re not sure what to do today and not sure where to start


It’s a common feeling and needs to be addressed

If you let it keep on coming, your mind could get all messed

So get yourself a purpose, or maybe more than one

Sign-up as a helper, or go out and find your fun


It surely is that easy, but you really need to act 

Muster up the energy and courage to interact 

It’s the hurdle facing all of us, each and every day

The hope to live a life of peace and come to us to stay


It really makes a difference, if you make your peace within

Don’t keep dwelling on your worries, then a new life should begin

Your confidence and trust, could build to such a peak

You will treasure every moment and have the life you seek
