The World Outside My Window

Tasmiah Azad

The fountain outside my window
teases me with its freedom.
Each day, in and out,
It burbles with joyous delight
Unaware of the global plight.
The trees outside my window
beckons me with its easy grace
It leans lightly in the breeze
doesn’t let a small hiccup ruffle it’s leaves
I will never be that peaceful
The roof outside my window
Calls me with it’s gentle slope
Being out in the air helps me cope
with the stress that comes from just existing
in each exhausting day.
The stars outside my window
smile because they don’t know
What’s happening down here
So let’s live in ignorance
On no one would I wish this mess.
