I choose embrace

do you ever feel
like you don't fit in
you wonder why
you seem to see life

from everyone else
you know you don't
not with 6.8 billion others
but yet it feels that way
surely there are others
others with similar thoughts
you can connect with
on some level
connections are fleeting
friends are rare
we're all too busy
with the details of life
we don't notice
don't care
don't have time
and tomorrow comes
another opportunity
to wake up
every precious moment
we're given
we're all intimately connected
whether we realize it
embrace it
or not
I choose embrace

If I had a dime for every time I felt this way, lol! Did you know your blog was the first I saw when I came to know about altered art back in May 08? The ways we all influence others without knowing it, isn't that amazing? Love the poem... it should be published.
