Favorite Quote:
"Youth has its drawbacks -- because we don't see enough of the world to know enough about ourselves when we're young. There's something to be said for innocence and optimism." ~ Steve Wagenseller

I am…

A speck of dust


In the galaxy.

A single droplet of


Trying to reach the other side of an ocean.

The smallest cog

Of a complex mechanism.

A deer

Pushing my way through

A dense forest

Just another somebody, watching,

As the world continues spinning

Without me.
When it's over, what will it have been for?
When it's over,
What counts?
