Young Minds

Young minds arm yourselves
There are those would cause you harm
Young minds guard yourselves
Though I do not wish to cause alarm.

The world is full of treachery
Desire, lust, and greed
Things can change deceptively
From the reality you believe.

Some say perception is reality
But that’s not really true
Reality is actuality
Perception’s just a view.

To guard yourself from trickery
One must first be fooled
Becoming skilled in the art of trickery
As a fool you build your tools.

If your mind is sharp
Your eyes always peeled
Those perceived to do the fooling
In reality will be revealed.

You will see your enemy
You will see your friends
And when the enemy comes in friendly
The fool will not be fooled again.
