The tale of the sun.

January 22, 2010
I see the girl on her tricycle peddling down the sidewalk.
I see the mailman with an armful of mail.
I see the little boy drawing pictures with his chalk.
I see the house down the street that is for sale.
I see the mother cooking dinner for her kids.
I see the father return home after deployment.
I see the teenage girl climb out of her window, even though her father forbids.
I see children palying hopscotch, purely for ewnjoyment.
I see all there is too see.
I look but can never touch.
For there is no one who has seen more than me.
I can't live in the world that i love so much.
For if i leave all shall die.
life can't exist without me.
I look down as the people walk by.
oh how i yearn to be free.
i close my eyes and say good bye.

Great poem! It encompasses more than a few feelings, the obvious and the not-so obvious. To me, that shows that you're aware of others. I don't know if that's what you meant the reader to take from it, but that's what I like about poetry; you can get out of it whatever you want, and it doesn't have to mean the same thing as the last time you read it. Again, good job!
