Standing There

Josie (Grade 09 / Riverbend Academy) Originally published February 2005


We turn and stare

At someone

Who is standing there

We look at them

As though they’re gone

But they are there

About to leave

Can’t stand it here

Because of us

Can’t stand it here

Because of us

And now

They’re gone

Because I’m here

So I’m the one

Who’s standing here

Now it’s me

Who takes the stare

I am the one

Standing there.
