Leave nothing but footprints,
Take nothing but pictures,
Kill nothing but time.


Why that fighting and war,
Why that killing, what for?
In greater cause,
Because of greater deed,
Or just feeding your ego,
Fulfilling your need?
Do you ever think of just one,
Only one sad face,
Empty street, empty heart,
You leave behind?
Are you aware of the trace,
All the emptiness,
Sad people, lost days,
Nothing more, nothing less?
No empathy,
Or valid values,
Feeling for the others,
Just doing things regardless;
Would awareness;
If you even noticed,
Would it make a difference?
Would less pretending,
Bring a happy ending?
Would you even bother,
Would you even change,
Try to help one another,
Before valid values have gone estranged?

I like the uneven meter you applied to this piece, it applies the emotion quite nicely. All around great job

Excellent use of rhetorical questions. The emotion that use begs the reader to understand...just for one second. This poem is appropriately titled. It brings awareness to the reader. Congrats on the Editors' choice. 5/5 stars from your truly.

I loved the rhyming! (rhymes in poetry are something I have never been well at so I always find it facinating when other people accomplish it so beautifully)

Isaac Asimov - "Intelligence is an accident of evolution, and not necessarily an advantage.”

The tempo and rhythm of the poem/song was very good and it kept it going all the way through, it was very fluent and not many can pull that off; it suited the fast pace desperation of the poem, as if it was begging the reader - it made it a lot more effective and powerful. There was a strong, almost emotional, bond between the reader and the poem, it allows the reader to connect. This is well written with good use of language and the rhetorical questions as it makes the reader think more. Well Done :)
