A BUS RIDE......

I am sitting on the bus
Looking at these people
And wondering what they're thinking
Looking back at me

Do they see a woman, filled with confidence and perfection
Always happy, always smiling
Always free

Or do they see a woman
With her heart a little fragile
With tears beneath the surface
Waiting for the moment when her face will tell the story of an requited love...

Am I that transparent - even on a bus?

Probably not Roniece...I didn't see it even from here (and we all know that an inside look is more revealing than the outside anyday!).

I have often thought these same thoughts, and how nicely you express them

You know, I ride the bus home from school every day, and I've thought about this a lot...thanks for bringing it to my attention!  

Hmm...but a transparent dragon...hey, that kind of reminds me of my own first poem!  

Great work!

While looking out
from behind these eyes
I often think
with great surprise
the eyes I'm looking in
are looking back at me
then I smile ...
confident that they see
the very best in me.

I like your bus trip.
