Everyone … And I

    “Everyone … And I,” New Era, Oct. 2007, 49

    Everyone … And I

    In every home

    along my street

    girls giggle,

    boys scuffle,

    fathers read,

    babies cry,

    mothers quiet,

    children laugh.

    In general

    people live their lives

    and I,

    I sit beneath a tarnished sky,

    watching the sun

    melt into a gold pool.

    And I …

    I live mine.
