Fitting In

I enter the hall
wondering where to sit.
People stare.
I spot an open seat
and immediately drop into it.
Relief flows through me.
I’m a part of the crowd.

    There is so much depth in this poem. I think we all like the feeling of fitting in. You captured the emotion of this experience well in this one. Keep on writing! Love you, Mom

    a powerful write, maybe the people staring like what they see or they could just be simply jellous of course, if peopel stared at my sister lesley she used to come right out with it and ask do you want a photo, God bless you from diane

    Well, I usually enjoy that situation. Perhaps, because I don't want to be part of the crowd... : ) Excellent picture, great job, Shannon. And don't be shy. : ) Ruben.
