Do you try to hide your
sensitive softer side?
When your emotions collide
Do you ever let go and cry?
Or would you rather stay numb
‘cause you’re worried that your feelings are dumb?
Don’t forget you’re human
and your best is what you’re doin’
Let’s reveal to others, minor feelings and their colors.
When you feel yucky sad and blue
Ask for great big hugs from friends who love you
If you’re really mad and anger fills your head
Go ahead, raise your voice and feel red
When you feel blah not sure and in the grey
Try to go with the flow, come what may
When you’re scared or worried and feeling brown
Breathe deeply and sit still until your nerves settle down
If you feel ignored or unseen
Let frustration and confusion turn your green
When you’re cranky, crabby, irritated and annoyed and exhaustion attacks
fade to black
Be strong and share how you feel
And your wounds will instantly heal
Know that you’re never alone
Open up and make your feelings known
You don’t have to hide
How you feel inside
If you have to cry
My arms are open wide
I’d never want to see you numb
Or learn that how you feel is dumb
I know that you’re human and
Your best is what you’re doin’!
