Atoms of micro molecules
Smallest strings that hold complex structures together
The glue whose importance is only noticed in its absence,
Countless droplets of a mighty wave
Splashing to and fro the seashore
Carving gorge in rocks,
Up above the sky so high
Twinkle twinkle the mighty star
Seen from far you look so small
Great but nothing but a speck of dust on high
Yet man thinks he is the master of the world
Puffing with pride and prejudice
“Do you know who I am?” he spits to stamp his delusion of grandeur.
Oh how insignificant.
If only you and I can see
That we are a nobody no matter who we are.
If only it will sink in
That the cosmos won’t bow at our individuality
Maybe then we will become more human
Embracing our insignificance,
To become a significant part of an insignificant world.
PS: This might not be classic poetry, but hopefully the message is not lost in translation.
