(Insert Title Here)

By , Beechhurst, NY
If you do care to notice or maybe even glimpse, 

you'll notice there isn't a title about a princess or a prince. 

You'll say,'Oh look no title, let's just skip over this one!' 

And I'll glare and think I know it's lame, 

But I can't dare to play this game. 

No more, no longer, I can't pretend to be happy! 

Maybe when there's no war I'll ponder to see the side

where innocent children laugh and sing, 

The side where a man presents his fiance with her

engagement ring. 

But do you people see no harm? 

You're just sitting in your houses pretending like your life is tender and warm! 

Like there's no danger, and random strangers are okay. 

You even see the news telling your kids to stay away. 

There's a price to be paid and worried teenagers like me
are afraid. 

We're afraid that the past is going to become the future. 

I mean it's only expected life goes around in a circle it's bound to repeat itself. 

So even though there's no title here you don't get to just sit back and drink a beer. 

If you really don't care that much then you shouldn't be lying there on your rear pretending like you give a beat about my opinion. 

If you did then it'd be a surprise like a Jack popping out of the box. 

Don't pretend like your as sly as a fox, 

Because I see through those eyes of fake sympathy, the eyes don't even hear the worried plea.

We all scream and chant please help me! 

Help us! Help you! Help everyone! 

Stop the war, stop the fight that's how you can help. 

You can stop my yelp by stopping war, 

After all that's all I've been fighting for.

This is brilliant! (: I love it! I have a poem a lot like this, if you want to check it  out. It's called "Good Riddance, Earth", and its similar in root and point. ALSO, I agree with your opinion so much!
