Teenage superheroes

Teenage superheroes
we’ve got saviors
who can’t buy beer
but they will save us
from our fears
wondering why
they can’t just have the career
no acceptance to the stars
but they will change this world of ours
tear it down and build it up
they will save the lot of us
teenagers who will create
the kind of world they think will stay
permanence they have yet seen
death though witnessed means nothing
teenage superheroes scream
they will save us
everyone
they will save us
from what we’ve done
they don’t know their history
but they will save us all today
children do the darndest things
save the world-save dream!

Undiagnosable teens

Let’s look for every
reason
every reason
but the one
the truth behind the number
the number of what’s to come
blame the tool that wounds you
point to shadows that tease
but never name the demon
never label the monster that feeds
dance around the issue
even when it’s clear
look for every reason
every reason we want to hear
always just the action never into deeds
we just look at surface
our answers never heed
healing our own hearts
with lies and misunderstandings
let’s look for every reason
every reason
for the bleed
look for every reason
unless the answer is haunting.
