Sometimes our little world is rocked.

And it’s no wonder we get shocked.

It’s like an earthquake in the sea.

As shock waves cause the tsunami.


Once it stops you think you’ve coped.

Or at least that’s what you hoped.

Then suddenly you feel the strain.

As those shock waves come again.


Sometimes a shock can cause distress.

And this can put you under stress.

Duress and stress affect the mind.

Then the world can seem unkind.


Sometimes you feel you’re on your own.

Whilst straying from your comfort zone.

But others also take a knock.

At the time of your own shock.


Some sound advice when you’re in shock.

Would be to pause and then take stock.

Count your blessings one by one.

Think of the good things you have done.


Try to make sure you fill your time.

Or find a ladder you can climb.

For you need to take some action.

That will give you a distraction.


It’s times like these you need a friend.

When you think your world will end.

Someone who simply will be there.

When you need someone to care.


It’s hard to cope with sudden change.

You suffer shock and things seem strange.

But I can tell by what you say.

Confidence will return someday.
