Toucan for Children
My Fight song
Updated: Mar 29, 2019
A 10 year girl who attended play therapy at Toucan for Children chose to write about this song when she finished her therapy as its all about getting over things.
“This is my fight song. Take back my life song. Prove I’m alright song. My power’s turned on, starting right now I’ll be strong, I’ll play my fight song. And I don’t really care if nobody else believes cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me”. (Song by American singer and songwriter, Rachel Platten, released in 2014 by Columbia Records)
She felt this song is about being strong and not worrying too much of what others think of you and that when times get hard if you stay strong you can get through anything.
"This can help you get through anything as it reassures you that you are not alone and if you talk about it to someone you are really close to, you can get through it together. That special person can give you the courage, determination and support that you may need to help you get through it.
When times get hard don’t go and hide, show that you can get through this and become a stronger person at the end of the journey. You can show the person that maybe has put you down that you are not going to let what they said get to you that much and come back stronger than ever. Even though what they say does hurt don’t let your emotions get the vest of you and show them a new side of you."
