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.
