BUT A DOT

 

BUT A DOT

We are but a dot.

A spot on earth’s surface.

Our importance over-exagerrated.

Our size magnified over time.

Take a step back.

Measure our scope and reach.

Compared to the universe.

Compared to the planets and stars.

Compared to the sun.

Understand your importance.

Understand your insignificance,

In the scheme of life.

THE UNKNOWN

The unknown calls to us

To leave our comfort zones.

To explore the outer reaches

Of our minds and capabilities.

What lies out there for us?

Hope for mankind and civilization

Or more death and destruction?

Or you ready to find out?

BUT A DOT

We are but a dot.

A spot on earth’s surface.

Our importance over-exagerrated.

Our size magnified over time.

Take a step back.

Measure our scope and reach.

Compared to the universe.

Compared to the planets and stars.

Compared to the sun.

Understand your importance.

Understand your insignificance,

In the scheme of life.

WHAT IF

  1. WHAT IF

    What if the sun exploded one day?

    The day began as all others.

    And then the sun kept getting larger.

    Hotter.

    Steamier.

    Until it exploded.

    Hot fire balls fell to earth.

    The rest were absorbed into space.

    Once the fires were extinguished,

    darkness fell across the earth.

    The moon wasn’t ready to come out yet.

    Who would save the earth?

    Warm the earth.

    Provide the needed sunshine for plants

    and all living things.

    The moon stepped forward.

    It puffed up to appear larger.

    It blew out steam to warm the earth.

    “You’re hired,” mankind shouted.

    The moon replaced the sun.

    Twenty four hours a day.

    No time off.

    No rest.

    But a lot of grumbling.

    So we ask: What if the sun exploded?

    We would be in trouble.

    Stuck with the moon for sunshine.

    Sun, we bow down to you.

WHAT DO WE NEED?

mountaineous: Punch-Drunk Reverie | Tula Top

What does a person need?

To make him feel safe.

To feel secure.

To feel at peace

with the world.

A stream of water.

A few mountains.

Some sunshine.

Birds chirping.

Blue sky peeking

through the entrance

to your own cave.

It can be as simple

as a floating leaf.

We need so little.

We require so little

to survive.

Yet the world provides us

with so much more.
