I paused
Stood aside
Sight fixed
Chin high
And I watched them pass by

They walked with purpose
Long strides
Bent heads
Phones to ears
And I watched them pass by

Voices evaded my ears
As I stood by the by
Purposeless
Worthless?
And I watched them pass by

Frowns
Smiling faces
Blank eyes
Battleworn
And I watched them pass by

Standing still
I observed
I learnt
Indifferent
And I watched myself pass by
