Rise

They sit with stomachs rumbling and talk about how they eat, They sit with smiling faces and cry under their sheets, They sit with silent voices and scream inside their heads, They sit with normal people And wonder how, oh how? They sit and stand,  They sit and stand,  They sit and stand again.  They sit and lie.  Or stand and rise. 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
