We’re still witnessing this Shit. This was written 4 years ago, post Sandy Hook, post how many shooting deaths, how many atrocities? This world is ours to heal or harm. Don’t make us a bulletproof vest society. I LOVE YOU.

Bulletproof vests just in case
Never look a stranger right in the face
Button up your coat, make sure your armors on
Let us bow our heads and pray that there’ll be no alarm
No fire drill that’s not an exercise
No running to the schoolyard with tears in your eyes
Bulletproof vest before we hit the mall
Strap on your ankle knife
It’s going to be a ball
Just in case a loose one decides the time has come
We can slit their throat like we see on the tele when we freeze because it’s on
Bulletproof vest
Underneath your coat
Just in case the movie theatre in firepower becomes cloaked
Did you bring your gasmask and are you fully strapped
We’ve got to kill the killers they’re loose on the attack
Come on little angel
It’s time to run with wolves
Sharks and predators who feel misunderstood
Come on planetary folks let’s judge and let’s condemn
Continue overpowering mental health with illusions and shiny gems
Let us gasp in horror then laugh at the sitcom
Watch the news gather tears then applaud themselves with awards
Let us truly CHANGE REALITY into Eden’s view
Let us say FUCK THIS SHIT and begin anew
The time for preaching has come and gone
Activate the action
Train yourself in compassion
Live without fear in the face of madness
LET US ALL KNOW YOU ARE PREPARED TO CARRY WEIGHT
Then ask your hurting family to drop it at the gate
I can listen
I will LOVE
Just don’t hurt the Children
Elders holding on to last breaths
They are still the Children.
Bulletproof vest society that is where we’re heading
While demons roaming view with fear salvation as a heathen
Fear is the only reason insanity is breathing
Blood stained nightmares fear of judgment is truly leaving
Saints are Sinners Sinners are Saints
LEAVE YOUR BULLSHIT AT THE GATE
This is the world we are Sharing
Why is a 5 year old down a barrel staring!!!!!!
Teaching 6 year olds to slice open throats with teeth baring
Cuz it’s just a game
And we are on the losing side
Ask the Dead
ABSENCE DOES NOT LIE.
