"Life goes by fast If you don't stop and look around once and awhile, you just might miss it." - Ferris Bueller

I walk these streets alone,
looking at all the people who walk by. Not knowing any nor recognizing them. Loneliness slips in and then I remember I have a job to do, a task to accomplish and I move on. Heading down into the subway it is surprizingly empty. I get on and see a boy, sitting in the shadows on the back on the train, alone, and my feeling comes back. I shake it off again, remembering my goal. I can see it insight, but I can't help peeking back at the boy, sitting alone. Reminding me of myself, my time in the shadows, the time I still endure. The train gets to my stop, I get up to walk off, looking back again. I think of my life, then I go and sit with him.

The author's comments:
Using personal exsperience to advance others lives often can help us cope with our own personal past dramas. Don't just let a wrong go into the blue. If in your power, fix it. Others come first, no matter how much it pains us.
