normality has been turned upside down
job and financial losses cause a frown

locked inside with energetic kids
usual sanity exploits on the skids

this too will pass with due diligence
as we each have the inner resilience

having no control can eat at our soul
take care, spoil yourself, weaken it’s toll

people are fragile fearing the unknown
we have the choice to smile or groan

this too will pass with due diligence
as we do have the inner resilience

don’t cave in, don’t let it harden
listen to music, dig in the garden

share your feelings, find an outlet
holding it all in will only upset

this too will pass with due diligence
as we have a wealth of inner resilience

get creative unleash your passion
write paint invent explore fashion

do whatever helps you chill
for stress can make you ill

this too will pass with due diligence
for YOU have the inner resilience
