Write your response to the topic, “A Basket Case”.
Be it literal or just an exercise in imagination and creativity.
It’s not kind to call someone a basket case
You’re implying that they are in a bad state
Unable to cope and handle their own affairs
Rather than saying unkind things we should instead
Extend a helping hand accompanied with words of sympathy
Understanding that we all go through tough times
When stress and life itself overwhelms us
With its unexpected demands and complexities
And we all need a shoulder to rest our head on
And a sympathetic ear to listen when we share
All that has happened to undo our tight control
An act of kindness is a reward in itself, giving joy
