Waiting

Someone once said to me

“all we are is simply this

piles of star dust on a rock

floating through space

and waiting to die”

And this is true

But as we wait

As we take our journey into the aether

As the stars dance around us

As we struggle against the infinite

And make light in the void

As we fleeting souls in our ephemeral nature

Wait to dance with the specters

There is a beautiful between

A liminal space

A tiny little thing

Called life

    This is a beautiful poem. All encompassing and universal but also placing importance on something so small as a person’s life — in the entirety of everything there is I mean.
