Each person you pass on the street,

holds the strange beauty of a strange life.


We all breathe the same air,

and will die without it.


Avoid narrow-tipped assumptions causing you to fail

to invest the time to know 

peculiar characters, rough hewn and angular,

who enjoy the talents 

of spontaneous, unplanned actions.

Some leading a saintly life on reverent missions,

others bearing subdued pain kept inside.


Many individuals have skeletons in their closet

that dance for them.


Indeed, your own closet also bears your tales.


 Linda Imbler
