Last night I went to the Taking Back Sunday/The Used show and while we were waiting in line, there was a very old man (probably around 75ish?) outside with bags full of “save yourself” papers promoting his religion. But that’s not what bothered me, what bothered me was how sad he looked. He was alone, very soft spoken and he seemed extremely shy and scared. The opposite of what you’d imagine from “protest” type people. The sadness in his mannerisms and eyes struck such a cord with me, I felt so bad for him. He didn’t seem happy, just depressed and alone. When he tried to get someone’s attention to take a booklet, you could barely hear his words. He was shaky, timid and very few people took booklets or even bothered to look his way. Idk, I just felt an overwhelming sadness when I think about how sad his eyes looked. Although I don’t believe in religion, I hope he finds peace soon whether it’s through his religion or not.
