Favorite Quote:
things that are silly do cease to be silly when done by sensible people in an impudent way- Jane Austen , emma

I am sitting on
A bench
People all around me
And screaming
One reaches out to me
She yells
But i do not understand
What she is saying
The fear in her eyes
And worsening
Like a strong ocean storm
She is carried away
And gets once again
In the ever flowing river
Of people
It all becomes a blur of color
Flashing before my eyes
Pushing me further
And further away
From understanding.

I think this poem describes how lost and hopeless we can feel at certain times in our lives.
