Alone in a Crowd

Alone in a crowd of strangers

Spinning, twirling where to turn

Adrift in a sea of faces

Searching, looking whom I know

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Not one of the many colors,

Sizes, genders speak to me

For each in a hurry sprinting

Dragging luggage to the gate

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Sardines, we are packed in cramped seats

Harnessed, belted, buckled tight

To wait for the looming take-off

Destination, journey’s end

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Alone in a crowd of strangers

Chaos, turmoil all around

Retreating to my quiet place

Tuning in to higher self

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Adrift in a sea of faces

Spinning, twirling where to turn

Find harmony, peace and love thoughts

Inside you and nowhere else.
