sonder

perspective

As I rode the subway, I took interest in the people around me and wrote little pieces of each person.

Long hair, greased with no products
Just a simple man wealthy with problems

A tube of pink lipstick, coating her lips
But no man to wipe it off with

4-inch heels; painted red bottoms
but no label reading Louis Bouton

tailor suit, always paying the cover
Till he goes home to the basement of his mothers

Class clown, winning the word with his jokes
Social anxiety covering the real hoax

Instagram-friendly couple of the year
Pictured smiles practiced in the mirror

Weed leaf socks, cool kid to all of his friends
But little do they know, that joint will transcend

skinny but full, her protruding bones disagree
A shadow of her future if she continues to feed

He dips his toes into success and prepared to dive-in
Until the veil of truth fell from the glittery abyss

Is it true, is it true
what happened to you
