Crinkly Alpaca & Up-Beak Duck


 On a road to recovery

You meet people on the way

Counsellors, they come and go

There’s so much more to say

Everyone works differently

Depending on where you’re at

They soon adapt with where you are

As you open up this & that


The journey requires much stamina

An open mind, such strength

No pain, no gain, it seems to touch

As you unravel pain at length

You see, it’s entirely up to you

To put in what you give

To get you through the hills ahead

To help you breathe & live


There are ups and downs

And ideas to get you through

Coping strategies are taught

But the core is up to you

With each stage, you start

To find your real, true me

Not ever an easy task at all

But that “REAL” is meant to be

It takes a special counsellor

To guide you on your road

To help drive you to your destiny

And help you lift that load


A cuppa awaits me in that room

And it time for “me time” sharing

A little crinkly bear and duck,

A snuggly blanket, CARING.


There are special people who touch your life

And just want what’s best for you

And you are one of those people

In everything you do
