Nonchalance

Never thinking about anyone else

Or how your actions may affect them

Just living through life

With a blind fold on

Not caring

What happens to those around you

Or what happens to this world

.

Then

Bumping into another person

Who feels the same way

One who doesn’t care

What happens to the world

Or their place in it

.

Looking at them

At the faint shadows behind the blindfold

In a way

That others

Must have looked at you

.

Wondering why

They feel this way

You feel this way

And beginning to grope around

For the answer

Removing the blindfold

To better search

.

Removing the blindfold

And seeing the color that was lost

The color of the land

The things

That were never noticed

Underneath the blindfold

.

The twinkling of the stars

The deep twisting green of leaves

Things that never

Could have been appreciated it you had gazed on

Only with the nonchalance in your eyes

.

Beginning to care

Now that you have seen the beauty of the world

Beginning to understand

Your place in the world

And how you should live it
