My room is so quiet and still. I can see out but they cannot see within. My silent surroundings protect me from my fears, and yet I sit and look, watching as they walk by. I wonder who these people are, where are they going, where have they been, do they know I exist?

Disconnection from the world is a battle that sometimes defeats us all and we find ourselves alone. A smothering seclusion that it difficult to surface from.

But there is light outside the window and life that passes by....waiting for us all....if we chose it.
