Desmond Tutu 1931

When someone asks what's wrong 

Don't lie and say nothing 

They are offering you a shoulder 

Whether its to cry on or to lean on 

Accept it 

Let that someone offer you it 

When someone says 

You're voice changes

When you lie, don't laugh it off

Just tell the truth 

When the truth is hard 

Lean on that shoulder for support 

When someone asks what's wrong 

Tell them, they offered their shoulder 

Let them offer it because 

When you offer the same 

All you want is for them to 

Accept it

Recently someone who I trust asked me what's wrong and I couldn't bring myself to answer at least not honestly. I'm working on accepting help but sometimes it's harder than it seems. I want to accept it.
