"our only true fear, is fear itself."

Watching the world while standing still is really amazing
the living breathing planet that never stops, it goes in circles and somehow dosent get dizzy. It's buzzing with people like slick haired men carrying briefcases and storming around conversing with bluetooths not caring about the people around them. And young children bustling around a playground holding sandbox toys and always smiling, the children are hidden or wht some call protected from what the morbid real world is like. To homeless people passed out on the sidewalk with absolutely nothing, frozen with a nickel of hope in their styrofoam cup. To crinkled old women that use all their effort just to get out of bed in the morning. Only to sit back down in that worn leather chair In the middle of the living room just sitting and watching.
Watching breathing living. Barely
