To Look At Me

To look at me, no one would know.
That each thing I see, I think about.
I make details and colors.
Why they walked this way
and what the sky was like.

Told stories as a child.
Wrote them in notebooks
while riding home on the bus.
Told everyone I'd do it
if only I could find a job.

Everyone has a story.
It's just mine to tell.
A twist of life.
A swirl of wind.

Everything is different
at least in my version.

So, as I walk I see it all.
Nothing misses my filters.

Always quiet but watching.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
