Ignoring the Important

By , Christiansburg, VA

We as a society tend to ignore

the hurt, and the pain,

and the slamming doors.

 

We as a society tend to ignore

the stillness and the quietness

of thy neighbors next door. 

 

The numbness and the sorrow

that sits still beneath us

falls into a blind sleep

that we tend to borrow. 

 

We as a society tend to ignore

the death and the peace

that will soon come to war. 

 

But now we sit and think to ourselves:

what could have happened

if we noticed it?

Should we pride oneself?
