It’s okay to worry

This is crazy time for all of us. It is undoubtedly different, unique, and sometimes feels unreal. If it is challenging to us, imagine how our children might be processing it all. Thus, I have written few lines for us ‘parents’ to read to our children. These lines might help them feel validated about their feelings and emotions that they are experiencing, however, unable to vocalise, in a fun way.

Title: It’s okay to worry

Bravest of brave
Smartest of smart
Worry
Because,
its okay to worry sometimes.

Toughest of tough
Coolest of cool
Worry
Because,
its okay to worry sometimes.

Fiercest of fierce
Strongest of strong
Worry
Because,
its okay to worry sometimes.

Its okay to worry,
Because
Everything has changed
No more get togethers with friends
or birthday parties arranged.

Its okay to worry,
Because
There are no more schools
or outings with friends in parks and playground,
We have to stay in, we are all home bound.

Its okay to worry,
Because
Everything is different, everything seems new,
When grown ups talk about virus
It feels so unreal
We wish, all this was untrue.

Its okay to worry,
But, we have reasons to smile and to cheer up as well
Yipeee! more time to play peekaboo, catch ball or how do I spell ‘spell’.

Its okay to worry,
But, we have reasons to be happy and to make our day bright
We are with family; playing, helping, sharing
From morning till night.

Yes, it is different
Yes, it is crazy
When will things be back to what they were?
When we ask mum and dad
They say,
Oh sorry! my dear! it is a bit hazy.

But, in all this,
one thing is for sure,
We ‘ALL’ are in this together
Our family, our friends, this ‘WHOLE WORLD’
And,
Yes, we will ‘ENDURE’
