The Social Organism of Youth - by Bob Atkinson

The Social Organism
of Youth
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

youth devolves simplistic
melding into a fold
of broadly massed confusion
taking comfort in the bold

a social organism knows not fully
which ingredients measured in that mix
are true or false or with intent to create
illusion of standards jellied for the privileged

skills, abilities unknown if adequate
give doubt as where to stand
standards taught with firmness
anchor our meaning in the sand

ordered chaos innate to self
with undulated verbiage subdued
breeds vision of one's description
filling needs of completed attitude

skin upon sharp edges
creates pains when approached
by outside order established to
counter arrogance of ego's force

buried in this effervescence
below that surface quaking
conflict or submission's decision
demands one hard undertaking
