These words are the property of clever people. I'm just trying to put them in order.

Sticky shoes

When you feel a little down,
And you’re feet aren’t on the ground,
They’re flying all about,
Making people scream and shout.

It’s important to remember,
The more you flail and fly,
The more that people run away
Some shout and some will cry.

But try and glue one foot to the floor,
While you struggle to stand straight,
Explain your situation,
And less will hesitate.

They will come and help your other foot,
And make it stand so normal,
When you take off your gluey shoe again,
The two of them will both seem formal.

It’s like there never was a problem,
You’ve stopped flying around,
For even a ball of emotion can,
Be glued back to the ground.

And after a while you won’t recall,
The problems that you had,
Or you’ll see them like a funny dream,
But they won’t make you feel so bad.


My pyjamas.

My pyjamas are stuck to my body,
My pyjamas are stuck to the bed,
I can’t go to work now,
So I’d better stay here instead.

Thoughts in the night

Thoughts in the night,
Maybe a scare or a fright,
Or perhaps a delight,
But it won’t wait ’til daylight.
