Tell me....

by Alyssa   Jul 2, 2005

Tell me...
why people are living
like they do

homeless standing on
street corners

people are living for money
they would jump off a bridge
for a penny

people killing there own brother
they say they deserved it

they are blamed for others mistakes

laws are not followed by their makers not now

Is this life?
No, this is what people make of it.

**I know this isn't very good, I just was thinking and had to put something on paper....please comment and vote please!***

    i'm with yah on this one, its seems like people are really greedy these days that all that matters is how much money they have in there pockets. i go to a school where all the rich kids in are town have complete control and can get away with any thing cuz there parents have money. i love this poem its true keep writing and expressing how you feel.

    You write about what you see, hear or are a very physical writer, it seems- much like all of us on this site. Don't be afraid to broaden your horizons on topics, and never be afraid to experiment! Keep writing. Thanks for your comment on my poem " My Creed"

    love always,
