As I walk I watch, but I don’t realize,
Right there and then, how little I see.
Once I pass I stop, and I remember.
I looked without seeing, so I start to think.

I just passed someone, and I know who they are.
We are not close, but they are still important.
All that I noticed was us passing each other.
But behind all of that, I didn’t know what was there.

There’s more to a person than what meets the eye.
What the brain and heart hold is what makes them unique.

The author's comments:
I feel upset by the fact that so many people do not pay attention to detail. Everything should be appreciated, and this goes for everyone as well. When I see someone that i haven't talked to in a while, i now try to make a point to connect with them somehow. Even if we aren't close, we could still enjoy each other's company!
