Children are born
and die needless deaths,
gunfire, crack, brutal moms,
who really cares?

Lovers love and laugh
only to lose and cry
heartbreak, tragedy, suicide
who really notices?

Life revolves
and we turn with it mindlessly
jobs are lost, bankrupt, homeless
who really sees?

Humanity stuggles
through the tide of self
I am for me, screw you
who really give a damn?

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

JP,
We all give a damn to some extent or we would not be here. Sometime I think we just wish we didn't.

But JP is right, there are far too many who don't.

all I have to say, is good grief.

How sad but true....I've found myself feeling like I didn't "give a damn".....it's an awful low that I don't wish upon anyone. Temporary though, I might add! Nowadays, I've found life is far too short to not care - how sad it would be to live your last day here on earth with that kind of attitude. I'd rather be running naked through the rain !!! (Anyone care to join me ?) LOL

I am glad to know that I am not the only one who feels like this at times...
