    People moving,
    Crowding places. Polluting parks.
    Driving wasted.

    People doing,
    Harm is done. Holes are dug
    For hated ones.

    People praying.
    Gun in hand. Prepared to kill
    For someone's land.

    People changing
    Points of view. Erasing thoughts,
    Rewriting news.

    People speaking,
    Bursting ears. Always making sure
    They're here.

    People building
    Towers, walls. Miles of steel
    Imprisoning all.

    People helping
    For a price. Expecting gold
    From lead advice.

    People desperate
    To believe. Foundations built
    On fragile dreams.

    People leaving
    Daughters, sons. Overloading a future
    For people to come.

    I like this poem, especially the rhythm you get when you read this poem out loud.

    Hey, thanks guys! I didn't expect it would get a good reaction. You know, the more poems I keep to myself, the less I appreciate them.
