The broken window

The window stood,
An outcast,
Unnoticed by those
Who could care less

Always standing,
Always watching,
As the whispering winds
Pressured it on

It watched
As the children played
Always wishing

The boy swung
And he watched in shock
As the ball hurled towards the window

The ball
Full of venom and sadness
Full of spite and anger
Hurled toward the window

Crash! The sound went
As it slammed into it
The window shattered,
Shattered into tiny insignificant pieces

For the window was
An outcast,
Unnoticed by those
Who could care less
