Because Nobody Cared

Because nobody cared,

A child without a mom,

Because nobody cared,

She lives all alone,

Because nobody cared,

No food or money for her,

Because nobody cared,

No clothes for her to wear,

Because nobody cared,

She doesn't live in a home,

Because nobody cared,

...Now... She doesn't live at all.

Because lots of people have been saying "You Shoul tell us why we should care and why no one did care" so I am going to tell you.

No one Cared Beccause some people just don't care abou the world and they don't care about anything anymore and so they aren't doing anything.

We should care because somewhere out there in the world there is probably a young child sitting in the cold without food or clothes and if you don't care then there could be tons of children out there without food, clothes, shoes, family nothing at all.

This was interesting, and a very forlorn composition. Though descriptions and back story are always a nice touch, I still found this poem to be well written and expressive.

Keep up the good work!

This was really well expressed. It's true. In society today, it is often easier not to get involved and just ignore those who are less fortunate. There are people everywhere who suffer like this everyday. Hopefully one day we, as a society, will realize that using tax money to feed the homeless is more important than using it to build weapons.

I hope you never falter in your quest to help others. Thanks, Anthony

You send a very strong message here. We all hear you loud and clear. Take a stand for what you believe in and make a difference. You've got a big heart.

The messege is clear here- if you care for someone who seems like no one, they could grow up to be a big someone.

This is a wonderful message. I guess all I can say is that if we each do a little, then a lot can be done.

That's strong. I didn't expect that last line I thought the poem was longer. But Delaney is right about saying why we should care.
Great poem anyways!

this is really good. The repetition brings out what your trying to get across. But I agree with Delaney, you should describe why we should care. that would bring it out more.

Wow... this is really good for someone of your age. I like the repetition, but I really like the punch at the end. It drives your point home and makes people think about caring a little more... it could save a life.

I should write a story but I am not very good

        08-09-2004     Leah Garrison        

wow this is a really intense poem. I reall like the use of spaces and the offhand knifestab at the end. it sounds regretful, hurt, and a little bit angry, and is very good.

        08-08-2004     Paula Tsvayg        

Wow. This is a very strong poem. Maybe you should write a story about such issues. This is a very very googd poem, and I think that the poem is very great, and you deserve five praise points

This is a really touching poem!made me think of what I could do for other people.

I think this is good for someone so young. I just think you should describe more. Tell us why WE should care, why does no one care? What did she do? What's the story? try to be more constructive and add more to make us want to care or feel sympathy. Good work though!
