PROMPT: Time Traveler

0
To the right,
Mini skirts and stolen glances,
With only carefree thoughts
And reminders of bittersweet romances

To the left,
Pause for a moment. Beware,
Of the people hidden in ebony cases
Their harrowing stories told only by vacant stares

Look up,
At the fame and fortune and names in blinding lights
You fight over Twiggy
While others fight for life

Look down,
Are they beneath you?
Same dream, different world
And only time will see it through.
