Something Beautiful

A few months ago I was studying at the IYV Tech campus library. On the second floor, north side I noticed a hand written poem on the windowsill. It was/is titled “Window Watching.”

Window watching makes you realize
That this world is big
That things move around you
And you have to choose
To either stay behind
Or move with everyone else
The world is moving quickly
You hurry to keep up
You wish there was time to sit
To relax, look back
But there is rarely enough time
You have to keep up or be left

The poem was dated April 4, 2009. I guess the custodial staff liked the poem well enough not to have cleaned it for the past four months. And I find that beautiful.
