A
Speck.
Small,
Insignificant.
We take
no notice.
Just a
Particle of
Dust.
A single atom.
Too small for
Our
eyes to see.

We look
at life
through a lens.

No,
We do
Not notice
That really,
All earth is
Is a speck,
That this
Town is
Is a
Speck.
That really,
In the big scheme of things,
I am
A speck.

Superb how you wrote the poems with only small, curt, words on each short line; really captures the feeling of smallness!
