Coping Skills

For some they shop,
For others they mop,
For some they swill
For others tears spill
For the uphill climb of modern life
Prepare young souls,
for goodness AND strife
Feelings gulped down like the salty sea
Aren’t guided by the moon
If not set free
Don’t choke them down
like nasty gristle
Call them out
Like a captain with a whistle
listen like a friend to your questions
to your fear
Like the lion and the mouse
wriggle free
from prejudices torturous spear
