      Reality Check

      by Elizabeth A. Miller

      They walk the streets alone
      With no body and no home
      They call out to us for some help
      But we’re too wrapped up in ourselves
      To bother to listen.
      We turn away
      We don’t even notice
      How the world has changed

      Our children are starving
      The air is unclean
      But for many of us
      These events go unseen

      Scared and alone
      Children are crying
      Uncared for and polluted
      Our Earth is now dying

      Families are fighting
      Where do teenagers go?
      Some abused and neglected
      Or left out in the snow

      Our animals, too
      They’re abandoned and cold
      With no one to love them
      Or a place to call home

      Reality check —
      What are we gonna do?
      About the issues we face
      ’Cause they could happen to you, too Read more »
