I lie awake in bed at night
I sit up, turn on the light,
I pick up the pen and take out the book
Write down my thoughts for you to look
And begin to understand the way I see
The world that is around me
I see a world of hurt and pain
I wish I never had to see this world again
Theres people dying
People crying
Children starving and nobody seems to care
We should put them there
in their shoes,
See if they would get the blues
If they had to live a life
Of horror and strife..
This is why I write poetry
So you can begin to see the world I see

My son and I liked your poem immensely, although it is quite sad. Poetry is a wonderful way to express all emotions. Thank you.
