As I sit quietly, looking up
Staring at the pin pricks of light
Through the comfort blanket of night
Shrouding this world of ours
I consider my place, my time
In this ocean of existence
And I feel exhilarated, excited
I am alive, I am stimulated
Why should I feel small?
Being part of the bigger picture
I feel connected to all alive
All that are no longer alive
Why should anyone feel out of place?
We may be individual, only one of me
But I’m proud to be part of us
The Human Race!
We are details in this masterpiece
That makes it so
The single pages in the book
Without them it can’t be read
Sometimes violent and disgusting
Sometimes sad and inconsolable
And sometimes beautiful
We stand together
Lest we forgot
All will be lost
Not an option, not on my watch!
