“Doses of Laughter”

some teenagers
wanting to be found
one cutting his flesh
to be noticed

good medicine
sitting together
Chutes & Ladders, Uno
learning to shuffle
learning to have fun
without a device
filling their heads
with garbage
so much laughter
and prayer
for the itching to stop
as the cuts scab over
to heal
every time
asking God
the itching stopped
perfect love
casting out all fear
there’s a new generation
always rising
new hope for the world
to be changed
into heaven
a generation
tossed about
with impressions
from the world
getting past
what we see
looking into the heart
without judgment
