Lying

If I
Just start lying
Face-down
On the ground,
Motionless,
Not making a
Sound,

I wonder
How many
People will
Stop
And stare
And walk
Pass by
Like they 
Have seen 
Nothing.

I wonder 
How long,
How much time,
How many years,
Decades,
Or centuries
I will 
Have to wait
Until someone comes
And asks
Whether I
Am breathing.

    hello sir, you are a pro! a very nice poem, very clear and can be felt... -and if i tap you on your shoulder, will you make a sign or at least say hi? what only matters now, is to join you lie on the ground and stare at the sky-
