Teen Writing Prompt 587

Standard

Write a poem about what worries you.

 

Numb

I turn on the television and see death

Deaths of children, women, and men all over the world.

Each story beats me, whips me,  and digs into my soul

Fires, destruction – death for fun.

Life does not matter.

Death

Death (Photo credit: tanakawho)

Violence swells.

I turn on the television and see death.

And I feel nothing.
