Stop & Listen

Legions of nameless
Hurry by,
Their untold stories
Remain classified.

Wisdom unimparted,
Opportunities missed,
Countless chances but
Lives unenriched.

Faces unseen,
Eyes on the destination,
Much too busy to
Simply stop & listen.

Heads in the clouds,
Noses to the grindstone,
Many here together
Yet each is here alone.

    1. Thank you! I do it too. I wonder about their worries, fears, victories, defeats… we all have them, but few share them. I think that’s why I love reading blogs so much. πŸ™‚
