well it is a good poem, but, may I add to it?

when you get over the shock and awe, you will realise that there are many things to say and do.
In fact it is a fine poem,but the ending is unnerving. Maybe it is a true thought, tho. I feel the same a lot, but ultimately look for solutions.

"....and the tv keeps telling the stories
of all the wars and all the deaths
and we just watch it
i just watch it
and dont know what to say"....

not-knowing I don't believe
not-believing I don't not-know
now I know what I don't believe....
and wake up, offering a friend
a kind greeting on the way
to somewhere.
