Switch The Gear - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kids are dopin' up,
To keep their minds numb.
With wishes to eliminate,
Capers others made.

Kids are dopin' up,
To keep their minds numb.
Running from a fear to face,
Capers others made.

Many play it 'tuff'.
With an acting 'ruff' to cuss.
Bluffin' how they will kick butt,
Prepared to fist-a-cuff.
But...
Inside they are soft as muffins,
Sufferin'.
Disguising outside tears to cry.
Inside they all deny they're sufferin',
But puffin' to bluff...
All the pain that goes denied.

If they switch the gear from fear,
A madness had they'll tackle.
If they switch to not be near it,
Sadness disappears.

Kids are dopin' up,
To keep their minds numb.
With wishes to eliminate,
Capers others made.

If they switched the gear,
Away will go their sadness.
If they switched the gear...
Fear disappears.

If they switched the gear,
Away will go their madness.
If they switched the gear...
Their minds will become cleared.

Kids are dopin' up,
To keep their minds numb.
With wishes to eliminate,
Capers others made.

All capers to made will fade to quit,
When minds switch...
From teaching kids a bluffin' benefits.

All capers to made will fade to quit,
When minds switch...
From teaching kids from thinking,
Puffin' to be drugged up...
'Is' happiness.

They must be taught quick to switch the gear.
They must be taught quick to switch the gear,
From fear.
They must be taught quick to switch the gear.
They must be taught quick to switch the gear,
From fear.
And reject,
Divisions visioned.
To accept,
Conflict decisions...
Made to stay.
