Written Signs

People standing
Holding up
Written signs
Oh how they feel
About anything
A girl and boy
Standing right by each other
Not wanting to talk
They hold up signs
The girl's sign reads
'I Hate Him...'
The boy's sign says
'I love Her...'
Relationships can be so hard
A sad little girl
Holds up a sign
'I want to die...'
Tears streaming down her face
Sometimes they could be confessions
A little boy
That is filled with rage
Admits what he has done
'I killed my family...'
A girl
Only about fifteen
Holds up her last sign
And tells the world how she feels
'Im Going To Commit Suicide'
No one tried to stop her
They made her do it
Two little girls
Dressed in red
Hold up one big sign
It says
'Where is the peace in the world'
Silly little girls
Have you not heard
The world
Will never have peace
It is all one big war
A boy
So confused and lonely
'I dont like being alone'
Everyone is alone
Even me
No family
No friends
No life
Dont let that bother you
It doesnt bother me
I am used to it
People try to help
I dont need any help
Just let me live my life
The way I want to
And if I dont like it
Then Ill just die
All by myself

    Hey Allison, Thank you for sharing this poem. It is sad but well-written! We certainly don't live in a peaceful place but we hope to-one day. Please don't give up hope-don't believe the lie that this is all there is. God is alive! Peace and love, Audrey P.S. Hope I haven't offended you!

    I hope you are not holding a sign up to us. Sad poem, it would be great if the world was perfect and there was no sadness. Welcome to the soup.
