RO I stand AD
Glancing from side to side,
As people drift around me,
Walking to their own heartbeat.
The engines screech to a halt,
And many briskly walk off the platform
To be taken to their new destination.
Watching as a girl with headphones
Is dragged through the station
By her exuberant friend.
There are many who mute their voices
Out of fear
Out of their nature
But I remain indifferent.
Refusing to be brash,
Yet still as obvious
As a dandelion
In a field of clovers
I stare down
At the questions in my hands
Wondering if anyone has the answer-
To question number three on the sixth page-
But such a thing does not exist.
Because there is no correct answer
No cheatsheet for me to follow.
So I open my “eyes”
As people continue to drift around me
In the crossroads of a train station
Where I am destined to stand
In the intersection
Until I finally
