Alien No More

I sit amidst people, feeling like an alien
Disconnected from everyone around
A room full of strange creatures
And voices which feel like meaningless sound

Scurrying feet are rushing by
With strained faces and hassled looks
And those who sit waiting like me
Are lost in either phones or books

And then I spot a little baby
Peeping over to catch my eye
I smile and she smiles right back
My heart bursts open - I begin to cry

Tears of joy and tears of relief 
I am not an alien and neither is she
We are all humans, but locked in shells
Waiting for smiles to set us free
