Author: Pamela O'Brien


When I look at the world around me
I feel…….

Though they see me
They see me through their eyes
Instead of the truth in mine

And as I touch the glass
Of the windows that separate us
My reflection
Evolves into a chance

To be on the other side
To be living another life

How strange we are as humans
To purposely individualize
And rely on each other at the same time

Do you wish for an escape
From choices
That you’ve made in haste

Decisions that have altered your existence
And gave birth to an unnecessary resistance;
A phobia of being yourself

When I look at the world around me
I am…….

For a person nearby
Is staring out at me
And feeling insignificant
