PEOPLE OF THE CITY
I am here on a lonely day
Looking at the people of the city.
I realize everyone has different emotions
Displayed on their face.
I then try to study the looks on their faces.
As I look, I realize that most people
Are happy and jolly.
Others have sadness reflected on their face,
And most have difficult faces to read.
Judging by the look on their faces,
I tried to imagine if those who
Were happy and jolly won a lottery.
Maybe not. I tried to go deeper into the
Purpose of their excitement.
But it was impossible because
I couldnít read their minds.
I noticed that the day wasnít so lonely.
I then realized that studying people is interesting.
As I watched the people showing their emotions,
I tried to imagine what emotion I was presenting,
But I didnít know because I felt confused.
I didnít know if my face displayed happiness or sadness.
I didnít know if I expressed anger like one of
Those people coming out of the store, angry at the price of items.
