Beat

Debbie Tosun Kilday –  4-1-2015

Has the world beat you up?
Beat you down?
Up, down, all around?
Don’t let it
Don’t let them
Who is heck is them?
Why, the world of course
The world consists of people
They will tear you up
Tear you down
They will turn you inside out
Upside down
How do I know?
I’ve been…
Beaten up
Beaten down
Torn up
Torn down
It turned my head around
I’ve been
Pushed
Shoved
Pulled
Punched
But I must confess
There’s no way
It won’t happen again
There’s a new beat
In town
