Never judge a book you've never read!

People are dying
Children are crying

Bombs going off
Guns firing

People are falling
Children are dying

This is our world
This is our home

These people are our family
We are a family

No this is not a poem
It's our life

Make a difference
Change our world

What are you going to do?

The author's comments:
I wrote this because we need a change. Sooner or later people are going to be afraid to leave their houses. We don't need that. Our home needs to be a safe place for our kids for when they grow up they will not be scared to go to school. So we won't be scared to go anywhere. Make a change. We are the United States of America. We are UNITED together all of us. It is time we UNITE together and show what love is and give love out to the world.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

This poem will go along great with your I See poem, should like combine the two.

I feel like the side note was more powerful than the poem, lol. But good poem and point.
