Poetry Challenge by PJ Bayliss

“Untitled #No. 4”

Have you ever,
Thought that dammit,
We have destroyed,
Our own planet.

Have you ever,
Wondered why,
We’re taught to love,
Yet trained to fight?

Have you ever,
Worked a day,
With extra hours,
Without the pay?

Have you ever,
Seen their eyes?
The lost youth,
Are they blind?

Have you ever,
Ignored the views,
Of the victims,
Upon the news?

Have you ever,
Heard their words,
Across the oceans,

As they burn?

Have you ever,
Asked yourself?
Is this heaven?
Or is it hell?

I have never,
Felt this fate,
Nor accepted,
It’s too late.
