    There are many types of different people in this world.

    Some who are nice to everyone all around.
    Some who hide behind the mask of deceit and lies.
    Some who constantly repress their true feeling down.
    Some who let ever thing out into the world.

    A true bystander is none of those things.

    A true bystander doesn't allow themselves to be swept up into the drama of daily life.
    A true bystander's only purpose is observe.
    Acting is a forbidden act to a bystander.
    Deceiving ones self into thinking their inaction isn't a sign resonance.
    A true bystander only emulates human interactions, because in truth there is nothing human about them.
    They hopes but no dreams. Conscious but never awoke. Seen but never heard.
    If a true bystander ever says anything, they never want to be seen

    A true bystander is the only one I have truly understood.
    It's the only one I can ever be.
