I feel for the man walking alone by the creek,

He was older, holding a fishing pole

Wearing a tshirt, a hat, and khakis

I wonder if he has a partner,

If he’s a recovering alcoholic

What his favorite color is,

If he’s okay


I wonder about the drunk girl I saw at a concert 2 weeks ago

If she got home safe

If she got to hear her favorite song

What her best friends name is

If she’s happy


I think about the friend that walked out of my life 3 years ago

If they made a new friend

If they loved me like I loved them

When they got that tattoo

If their mom ever got her dream job


I worry,
