I’ve Met People Trapped In Crowds

I've Met People Trapped In Crowds

I’ve met people trapped in crowds

Who think that “space” means you’re alone,

Who find their silence too deafening

To spend much time on their own,

They ask how I can hear the whispers

If I stand back from the crowd,

But surely whispers are drowned out

When where you’re standing is so loud?

If all you see of those around you

Is the back of someone’s head,

Don’t you think the bigger picture

Would mean so much more instead?

Just like you can’t find constellations

By looking at a single star,

Sometimes the world does not make sense

Until you watch it from afar,

Space does not mean you’re empty

It just means you’ve room to grow,

It doesn’t mean you must be lonely,

For there’s more people you can know,

Because the space between two beats

Just shows you have a working heart,

And it’s the only way to tell

If you’re apart or a part.
