Who Dares? - Poem by Shueyb Boyer

Who dares the boy not to pray, that don't know god?

Who dares the boy to jump, that has been living on the edge all his life?

Who dares the boy to hate, that was hated and spit on all his life?

Who dares the boy not to care, that wasn't cared for all his life?

Who dares the boy not to love, that grew up with a broken heart?

Who dares the boy not to trust, that was stabbed in his back since birth?

Who dares the boy not to be happy, that was raised with tears in his eyes?

Who dares the boy to steal, that falls a sleep from hunger each night?

Who dares the boy to lead, that don't know which way to go or his left from right?

Who dares the boy to kill, that was born in a world full of hate and war?

Who dares the boy to laugh, that don't know how to smile?

Who dares the boy to be angry, that was thought lies about his race since time?

Who dares the boy to cry, who cries his self to sleep each night, and cries every morning when he realizes he's still alive?

Who dares him?
Would you?

    Dude, this poem portrays the sad reality of unfortunate homeless childrens who are being abuse and being slave of poverty. The lines that breaks my heart the most is: 'Who dares the boy to cry, who cries himself to sleep each night, and cries every morning when he realizes he's still alive'. I love the way you write this poem. It seems to be an eye opener for us to see the suffering of this little children. This writting is so affective and persuasive that it made me symphatized and dare to care to that boy. So because I think this poem is not that brilliant, magnificient, incredible enough Im just giving it a 10++++ (Report)Reply
