Resilience

I want to say we’re so
small
but that’s been written
in stone and bark,
washed over by
foamy waves, and
screamed into the
twinkling vastness
more times than the
billions of seconds
I’ve been alive.

So I’ll say:
we have been smaller.

We have been microscopic
pieces of one day humans;
we’ve been monsoons
and sun showers,
soft ice and hard snow.

When you feel
the enormity of existence,

remember what you have
grown from,
and know that being
small
is entirely a matter of
perspective.

  1. Spent some time reading through your poetry, and I wanted to take a second to tell you that it is very good. I enjoy your writing style a great deal. I will be looking forward to reading more of your work. And if you are interested we are having a writing contest. Seems like it may be up your alley. Check it out on our site.
