I want to be seen.
I write, I proclaim, I stand up and speak so I can be noticed.
Like a peacock strutting his stuff, I want to be ...remarkable...
stirring up the waters of the world as I rush through them.
But some days,
I want to curl up like a walnut in its shell
as the world goes by,
unseen, unnoticed, and have nothing demanded or sought. Simply to be...unremarkable...
allowing life to pull me along with its unrelenting tide.
