Taking a walk in the bustling city

I slip into the shadows

and think about the world

I left behind

Had I been born in another place, in another time

this life may have led to nothing

just trips around a sun

perpetually shrouded in heavy fog

I pass each stranger

and wonder about their lives

I feel emotion, both raw and refined

as I prepare to immerse myself in new experiences

Resonant whispers bounce off crystal skyscrapers

urging me to reach for new heights

Reminding me to step out of the shelter of the shade

the chorus of support sings my song

I am resilient
