How Dare We...

By:Charles Vollmer

May 30,2008

How dare we take for granted

what we have?

Knowing that many others can't

have the same luxuries as us.

How dare we talk down on others

to hide our own feelings,

our own imperfections.

How dare we be so ignorant,so blind.

Hiding all our feelings behnd our

eyes.

Knowing that one day they'll

all seep out.

In small shallow cries for help.

How dare we complain about

the lives we live,

knowing someone has it

ten times as worst then us.

How dare we,How dare we.

Very poignant question indeed. We need to take time and pay attention to what is going on around us.
Very well written.

Take Care,
Ana

great job! ive tried to write about this topic (taking things for granted when some people have nothing, people who talk down to others because of their insecurity with themselves, etc.) quite afew times and it has always come off sounding fake and stiff. your poem flows nicely and still gives the message. i like it a lot. if you ever have time i would love it if you could check out some of my work. thanks :)
