A poem explaining life's darker side.
Life



Life
So peaceful at times...
So eternal...
But life also has its dark side.

I look.
I breathe.
I think.
Darkness...

I walk through the school hallways.
I see teenagers minding their own business.
So unaware of what's going on in the rest of the world.
Don't they know?
Life is passing us by.
So many murders.
So many losses.
So much death.
So much sadness.
So much evil.
And so many wars...

I just want to scream.
To yell.
To tell these fools that they need to do something!
Donate to charity or something!
Help a homeless person!
Don't talk on your cellphones!
It's not our species that is dying out.
It's our humanity that's dying out.

Don't you care?
Don't you see?
Don't you want to stop the misery?

A poem~
