Out of Place

They were right there with them. They interacted with them though at a questionable level. They were not able to hide the fact that maybe they were not feeling the vibe. The patience required comes with being humble but they were without a doubt out of place…

We let them have their will for the better part of the time. It is quite humbling to say the least. We do need to experience the other side as well. We cannot afford to be ignorant. As they say – no pain, no gain.  It is the sacrifice we have to make…

There are those that decide to, or just stay put. They painfully endure the experience but the fruits are reaped thereafter. There are also others who cannot afford to stay a minute longer. We do understand them as well. Sometimes it is better to walk away to avoid the judging…

Their attention is turned towards them. They cannot help but notice the difference. They seek to know more but that is quite a challenging feat. They thus remain puzzled about them. They are the ones. They can easily be counted. They are who they are; simply themselves and that is why they seem out of place…

After Thoughts

Do take it upon yourself; you’re responsible for everything.

It’s lonely at the top.

This Boy

They feel his presence and they all want him. This really pushes him to think about himself. What is it that they see in him? Is he all that? He knew he was great but I guess their attention was becoming quite something to him. They were all saying what was in his mind, but why was it disturbing him?

The boy hanged around them and he got to act in one way or the other. He remained noticed either way and that was the reason for all of these. He enjoyed it though coupled with a number of other feelings as well. He saw the potential results of that attention and he had to be on the alert…

They see what is already there; what he can be and that is why they react as they do. He notes that he is responsible for their reactions but at the same time he is afraid of the different directions they can lead him to. I do understand this boy…

That is the life that he desires; it is who he is. The energy that comes from it shakes him up a little bit but it works well on him. It comes as a reminder to him – of who he is. You live it to survive it…
