On the Outside Looking In

August 30, 2017

Nose pressed up against the window panes
On the outside looking in
Watching the happenings
Unfold before her eyes
Wanting to join
And blend in with all the others
Seeking a path that is barrier free
She almost makes it
Until something holds her back
Like sand through an hourglass
They escape her reach
And she continues to watch
On the outside looking in
