A Game We Play

We don’t know how to help

Because we are not allowed to say

We have to conform

To the social norm

Our work culture can be

a game we play

Winning joy and

Losing pain

Rules and common sense

Healthy communication

Shouldn’t hesitate

No situation is that tense

Let’s ease that into

I want to please you

Strength will come again

**

Do you know what I mean?

Let’s keep it clean

Streamline the connection

by sharing hard facts

We are more productive together

If contributions are clever

Caring more for safety and wellness

With understanding covering

More and more and defining

the very protection of all of

Each other’s

Straining, aching and loaded

Bold

And breaking

Backs

**

We don’t know how to help

When we are not allowed to say

We have to conform

To the social norm

Our daily culture can be

a game we play

Winning joy and

Losing pain

Rules and common sense

Healthy communication

Shouldn’t hesitate

No sitting waiting on the fence

Let’s ease that into

I want to please you

Strength will come again

**

Sometimes it’s the way you say it

Sometimes it’s where you are

Sometimes it’s the sky who is listening

And for moments you shine like a star

*

Our mind hinges on time

Opens to the space around us 

And between us and who we are

*

If we get up and speak up

About our best

Intentions together

Into forever

We will get

Very far

**

What is fact?

Here it is

The story on the table

Truth can heal

Choose it wisely

Only for better wellness label

A belief as a fact

Standing tall

No harmful fiction

Well maybe a fable

But have a chat

No pure lie addiction

Let’s put it all

on the table

*

Look hard

Weigh the options

Create as much

Good health as we can

**

In fact we are clearly

Able to learn

So let’s

Always

Work for the best new plan

*

Modern culture can be

a game we play

Winning joy and

Losing pain

Rules and common sense

Healthy communication

Shouldn’t hesitate

This situation we comprehend

Let’s ease that into

I want to please you

So our strength will come again
