Mateship Is All Around
Renee Roberts, Dakabin State High School
When all about you is black with gloom
And all you feel is pending doom,
When your bones are racked with grim despair
When every breath is a gasp for air,
Keep on going we’ll help you through
For around the bend is a caring crew.
Your mates and family are perhaps all that’s left
Although a few may be at rest,
You’ve lost some friends, it’s no use
You can end it all, you need no excuse,
Your feelings may be dark and blue
But don’t worry because you’ve got a helpful crew.
Just give your self another day
Brushing aside what your thoughts may say,
Your mates can help you though all seems dark
Just ignore your brain and follow your heart,
Most of your mates grew up with you
So take baby steps with your mates and crew.
