Poets are those who love,--who feel great truths, And tell them.

Close Your Eyes

by HanHoll

I am envious of a blind man
Because he doesn't have to see the things that we see today
Racism still happening after a battle had already been won
Poverty lining the streets of cities that once gleamed with prosperity
Money wasted while people starve
Wars fought that result in only lives lost and no compromise
Education not being prominent in our lives anymore
New generations equal worse morals and values
So close your eyes and pretend it all isn't here.

  1. Hello, I am publishing a book of poetry compilations from different teenage writers and was wondering if you would be interested in submitting an entry?
