In This World

Posted: January 29, 2013 by katlynmollett in KatlynM

Somewhere in this world

someone is trying to fall asleep

tossing, turning, forcing themselves to count sheep

Somewhere in this world

someone has failed a test

 and they put their head down on their desk.

Somewhere in this world

the sun is rising, and the moon is sinking.

someone is falling head over heels,

 and someone wonders how they will receive their next meal.
