On Nights Such as This

On nights such as this
You can see the stars
Shining down
Unobstructed
From such distant spaces
Breaking through to be perceived
Despite the ever-present city lights
And at times like this
I cannot help but feel
As an ant
Insignificant
Crawling meaninglessly
Through the obscurity of daily life

But then I remember
That even the ants
Are observed with wonder
Granted due respect
For their perseverance
The sheer determination of their existence
Embracing as they do
All of what they are
Carrying forward
Despite
And unaware
The immeasurable relative difference in their dimensions
To the world they inhabit
Unconcerned as they are
With what they are not
Rather
Encompassing all that they are
That they might fulfill
Their purpose
Neither mundane nor grand in their pursuits.
