I kept my head down today,
As I walked by the icy stare still seemed to crack my armor, berate my heart, and send shivers down my soul.
The first was an old man whose stare told a story of his own woe, how his business would of succeeded if not for those lazy workers. So all shall be shunned, stunted and maimed, for on that day his revenge became plain.
The second was a woman with hair flowing down, the gaze too was cruel with anger it abounds. Her friend was the lucky one with money and fame, in which one day she hoped to she share but was instead shamed. Told her nose was too sharp, her eyebrows thick, and now she looks down on everyone and critiques their Schtick.
The shuttering terror on felt in this most antisocial day, was unlike any other, even the lights looked dismayed. I formed a bubble, shell, which still through it the gazes fell. I moved away and through but the pressure ensued. My heart fluttered as the next arrived preparing with sadness for the snide.
But there was none before I looked up I felt an aura warm and accepting, was I going crazy or succeeding at deflecting, I peel lightly up at the person standing there. Hoping my guess would be true. It was a faithful friend of which a lot I had been through. They gazed upon me with a smile and said I haven’t seen you in a while. Their arms outstretched, it was a hug I would get. They squeezed tighter and tighter, and the horrors of the world got lighter. The held me till I held back, and I felt relief at last.
So remember there are people out there who care for you. And if you feel troubled you can care for yourself too. You have too arms which will reach tight around, because a hug is love and it’s always profound.
