How Can You Bear It?

Poetry By: Naomi Taylor

This poem was inspired by the people hurting and helping the world! Yes, sounds very dramatic, but every action counts for something! My poem is about the choices people make and my feelings towards them.

A light is turned on

You turn it back off.

Your friend weighs a little

You weigh enough.

She carries a lighter

You carry some gum.

He eats too much

You just eat some.

A faucet left running

You stop the flow.

That man holds a saw

You hold a hoe.

She cuts her wrist

You cut a carrot.

These things do happen -

But how can you bear it?
