With the mindset of a fool, I saw the vastness of the universe and grew tired of what was near me.
With the mindset of a learner, I saw the vastness of the universe and began to perceive the depth in all that surrounds me.
With the mindset of a fool once more, I began to see only my own understanding of the vastness of the universe and the depth in all that surrounds me.
With a mindset of humility, I cherished the vastness of the universe, the depth in all that surrounds me, and the great chasm between my own understanding and what it represents.
When I listened, with eyes closed, to your voice, trembling, in a language not my own, I wept.
I did not weep because I was sad, no; I did not mourn.
I wept because, hearing only sounds, I perceived what could not be conveyed in words.
When I wanted it for myself, I saw only where it was not.
When I was grateful it existed at all, I saw it everywhere I looked.
We are always…
…singing, wishing to be heard.
…dancing, wishing to be seen.
…crying out, wishing to be known.
Life: we scrape our form along the surface of time, making our mark.
