All Alone in a Crowded World

September 30, 2011
I stand, alone, but crowded.
The world rushes by
I listen, always listen, to what it says.
But what it says is sometimes
hard to hear,
hard to see,
hard to feel,
hard to understand.
Yet still I stand, alone, but crowded,
watching the world rush by,
listening to its incomprehensible words.
I am alone, but I am not the only one there.

Cool poem. I don't think it's depressing, just...interesting. In a depresing sort of way :)
