Have you ever had a profound realization that everyone: strangers, friends, family members, has a life as vivid and complex as your own?
Its scary and thrilling if you think about it.
Your mom and dad had a whole life before you.
They had ambitions, boyfriends, girlfriends, pets, hopes and dreams.
Secrets, worries, important memories.
Your friends have memories of accidents, parties, dark times, finding hobbies, going on trips.
The list goes on…
Strangers also have ups and downs, family issues, happy moments, and favorite songs.
And to so many people you are just a passerby,
noise in the background.
Yes it is a deep and interesting realization, but the strangest thing is to think that to many others we’re just a passerby. Nice ink!
thanks! Ive been writing this one for a while
you are perceived differently by everyone you meet…so there are literally thousands of “yous” out there…thought provoking poem
