Walking With Strangers

crowds 2

One amongst the many,

Shadowing the wall,

Hiding with the others,

Lost within the whole,

*

Searching for an anchor,

A sea of crowded faces,

Only seeing strangers,

In all the familiar places,

*

Voices in the shadows,

Caution in the eyes,

Choruses of whispers,

Of ignorance and lies,

*

One amongst the many,

Each face is but the same,

Searching for acceptance,

Someone to know your name.

*

One thought on “Walking With Strangers

  1. I like the rhythm of this poem. I am left wondering though whether there should be some sort of fulfillment of the quest. Looking for acceptance or a feeling of membership among a group of strangers…does the seeker find it? Or does he/she recognize we are all alone in a crowd?
