Fear Daze - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze...
With a wanting to awaken.

A fear daze has made the presence of threats,
Having people taking the next step to stop it.
With a protecting themselves,
From thoughts not visibly detected.
But wanting their religious beliefs kept suspected.

A fear daze has made being crazed a part of life.
Many are preparing themselves for mayhem.
To protect their suspicions with weapons.
And hoping to achieve a solution.
With their fingers on triggers and minds left cracked.

We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze...
With a wanting to awaken.

Everyday threats seem to be escalated.
In reminders of wars fought to celebrate.
Everyday in highlighted reminders we see,
People of all ages killing themselves...
And anyone else to pay the ultimate price.
A price to pay for learned beliefs.

A fear daze has made it impossible to escape,
From a negativity initiated.
Then wishing to defend against it,
When a return of it comes.
Run. We can not. There is nowhere to hide.
Run. We can not. Our denials don't subside.
Lie. Deceiving we feed more evil.
Lie. Receiving a fear made to be.

We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze...
With a wanting to awaken.

Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze.
We're in a,
Fear daze.
With a hope we will awaken,
From a celebrated hatred that was made...
But has left us crazed.
