Ask for Help!!
A song for those struggling with the concept of equality

(Tthe tune of I Can Help - by Billy Swan)

If you don't know what to do
if you don't know what to say
if the main thought in your head is 'please make it go away'
ask for help
there'll be someone who can change things
ask for help
It would do you good
to do the things you should
so ask for help.
 
If everything you're doing
seems to turn out wrong
try taking some deep breaths and remembering this song
and ask for help
there'll be someone who can fix things
ask for help
You don't know it all
nobody ever could
so ask for help
 
When you go to bed at night you want to be able to sleep
Treating people properly is something that will always keep
your conscience clear...
 
So instead of trying to hide that you don't know what to do
Instead of fooling yourself that you can muddle through
ask for help
from the people who know best
ask for help
be better than the rest
It would do the world good
if you do the things you should
so ask for help.
