In a crowd of people passing
to my left and to my right,
I see so many faces
with expressions dark and bright.
Entertainment comes from
people watching all around.
Some people with their heads in clouds,
or tripping on the ground.
Little children laughing
with hardly a care at all.
Boys at play with bat and ball,
or girls with baby doll.
Moms wiping toddlers dirty hands
as they gossip with soccer moms.
Dads holding their noses tight
as the pick up doggie doodoo bombs.
Teens with hair all spiked up,
orange, pink, blue and green.
Noses pierced or maybe lips
or any other skin pierce-able scene.
People of all ages with special ink
and tattoos that mean so much.
A memorial tat, a portrait,
all gifts of an artists magical touch.
Couples fighting over money,
or a maybe a lack thereof.
An old man who still loves his wife,
holding her hand and giving her a hug.
Toddlers throwing fits in Wal-Mart,
and moms holding their ground.
Kids being respectful in public,
even when their parents aren't around.
People come in many forms
with personalities unique.
If you get a chance to people watch,
sit back quiet-like and take a peek.
