Having Hope

Haley McColley 1989 (Freeport)

I'm at group
I'm not letting my feelings stoop
Group makes my day go good
I'm not hiding under my hood
I'm around people that understand and care
They do not just stare
I'm using my coping skills
I'm taking my pills
Going to groups helps me a lot
I'm not always put on the spot
Going to group is what's best
I look forward to it
I'm not going to forfit
It's not worth quitting
Although i'm doing a lot of sitting
It's better than pacing at this time
This is not a crime
