The World outside my window

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.
