(un) Screw - Poem by Dwayne Banks
When your soul is surrounded take a deep breath
don't let your feelings lower to a depth
A depth of misunderstanding, also despair
take that deep breath, show that you care
Care for yourself, the good you can do
a bottle cap is not, the thing you need to screw
Screw your head on, put your pants on tight
cause the road ahead, will cause you to fight
Fight for your being, the way you know best
forget the stupidity, the unlawful caress
The caress of the wrongs you have done in your life
a step ahead in time will earn you the knife
The knife to cut away the baggage you now carry
know in your heart, bad times you can bury
Think of the good and the smiles you have had
how many people have you made glad?
Neighbor down the street, the kid on the block?
as a volunteer, doors you will knock
Knock to spread the message of love in this world
your mind will release, souls will be stirred
Stirred for the good, ones in real need
help heal the wounds, so they won't bleed.
