BEYOND YOU

Friday, September 22, 2017


have you ever thought about the thousands of light bulbs
that shine above you in walmart
and who put them there
or the billions of ants you've crushed in a lifetime
what do you know about the earth and the lava boiling in the center of it all
how about the fact that someone just died
and someone was just born
these things happen without our knowledge
the bursting stars in outer space
the earthquakes in the ocean
the tears which were hidden from you
yes these are all unknowns
what do you think about that
