With good mental health I can be myself and not pretend
And ask for help from stranger and friend,
I can win or lose and both are fine
I can be early or late and lose track of time.
I can get things right or get them wrong
I can be out of tune when I sing my song.
I can make mistakes and choose the wrong path
And not get upset when others laugh.
I can have good days and bad ones too
And know that tomorrow I’ll start anew
I can be active or have a Duvet Day
I can work, or rest, or go out to play
I can do exactly as I please
And not be offended by a little tease.
I can sometimes be stroppy and not always kind
But not worry that again I am losing my mind.
I can tell it how it is and take people to task
And not hide behind my “Best Behaviour” mask.
With good mental health I can be free
With good mental health I can just be ME!
