Please don’t give up
Please don’t give in
Illegitimi non carborundum

You’re angry – with good reason
You’re heartsore- that’s to be understood
You’re frustrated, disillusioned, tired –  you’re human
Please please Illegitimi non carborundum

Have your anger, don’t let your anger have you
Don’t push the frustration, disillusionment and aching heart away – use it, channel it, master it
Let it be the fuel to give you drive, even if it’s only fumes at this stage
Please please I beg of you, Illegitimi non carborundum

We need you, so many of us
We believe in you, absolutely all of us
Just know that you are not an isolated figure bashing through this tempest
We may not always understand
We are here next to you always
Hoping that you feel the gentle touch of our hands and souls as reassurance of our love for you
Please please we implore you Illegitimi non carborundum

Right now, in this very moment, there may be no answers
Something has to give
Please believe that the sun will come out again and that the puzzle pieces of your life will fit together
Please don’t give up hope
Please don’t give in to the madness of this sometimes cruel, inexplainable world
Illegitimi non carborundum
