What Would You Change Scholarship Slam

John Jay High School
United States

Children not sure where they are going to sleep

Starving; so hungry not sure when they are going to eat

Crying on the inside because crying on the outside would be weak

They look and they judge, no one tries to help

They are smiling and laughing, no one has any idea

But would they even care?

So caught up in themselves

Always in a rush

Saying hi saying bye, never asking or caring about anything other than me me me.

I'd change it all

I'd change the ignorant indifference that seems to resonate in this world 

I'd change the parents who are too selfish, to love their children the way they deserve

I'd change it because no one seems to notice a problem.

The world goes on
