We All Know Someone Like This

Someone is sitting at the beginning of their day.

Someone is sitting alone wishing to find that one they could love forever.

Someone is sitting with a new fear not knowing where this new turn will take them.

Someone is sitting angry with the world and feeling abandoned.

Someone is sitting patiently waiting for a first date.

Someone is sitting impatiently waiting for a first date.

Someone is sitting quietly basking in the silence and reading a good book.

Someone is sitting in the quiet and wishing for the noise of yesterday.

Someone is sitting staring at blank walls.

Someone is sitting with memories while glancing from face to face upon their wall.

Someone is sitting avoiding thoughts by filling their ears with noise plugged in.

Someone is sitting contemplating their next hour, their next day, their next move.

Someone is sitting contentedly sketching out the pictures in their dreams.

Someone is sitting staring at the reflection and wondering what they have become.

Someone is sitting and laughing joyfully at the antics of the children.

Someone is sitting with hands folded tightly praying for or thankful for or wishing for.

Someone is sitting wondering how they got here, now, to this point.

Someone is sitting, grateful for where they have been.

Someone is sitting, anticipating where they are going.

Someone is sitting click click click.

Someone is sitting behind a purpose built wall.

Someone is sitting after knocking walls down.

Someone is determined to be free.

Someone is determined to commitment.

Someone is crying softly.

Someone is laughing loudly.

Someone is colorful and alive.

Someone is looking for excitement.

Someone is energetic.

Someone is restless.

Someone has loved completely and without reservation.

Someone is sitting at their day’s end.
