I Walk

I walk amidst all these people
Contemplating in thought I stare
I walk entranced, my mind so rapt
As if I were not even there

Across crowds of so many
Of all colors, of all faces
The Western, the Eastern
Personalities in all races
I see the thin and fat
I see the short and tall
In shapes and sizes
Beauty varies in all

Some stroll with smiles
Of the old and blue
Others in peevish laughter
Of youth and hue

Dressed in diverse styles, 
Some dim, some flare
I walk by women in beauty veiled
And others that walk half-bare 

In some I see despair
In others I find insight
Some, I just walk by
With not much visible to sight

I walk amidst all these people
Each one to life a strand
I walk in thought, in masses
And I simply don’t understand

    There's not much to understand, Farah, it's just that people are different from each other, that's all. Regards, Fred. (P.S. Next time you watch people go by again and you see a good-looking man, that would be me!!! LOL)

    Smile~But time will help You to understand even more, what I already believe that within many degrees, you somehow do understand!?:) That the world is just one big Alien ship; and that we all, have been abducted~Smile~"Hello Precious & Gifted Young Farah Chamma!":) I hope you didn't mind my little bit of humor here!?

    Observation. The way to secretly judge yet not to hurt those who oppose your eyes and mind. What you see, you understand, yet what you are seeing, seems not to make sense at all. Beautiful, I do the same once and awhile. "Beauty varies in all" Indeed my friend, it surely does. Love the rhyming.

    Hi Farah, watching and obserbing is one way of showing intelligence. Nice work. Keep on sharing. Ernilando

    your feelings & observation well expressed ... and wonderfully done! ~ Arany

    I like the silent observation, I picture someone walking through the crowds and observing so many habits, customs, each person with their own unique life story, their own mysteries in their heart. Nice depth and imagery.

    This is an interesting write Farah. Yes, people will confuse you, that's for sure. Never dull though to watch, as Kristin writes. Sometimes disturbing, that's for sure. I prefer the country and nature to people watching. : ) Love, Shar
