Here I am.
Standing on the third stone from the sun.
Spinning at 1675 km/h.
I am the result of millions of years of
supernova’d stars and a plethora of cosmic energies.
I am living and breathing in the atmosphere created
by these stars and energies.
To me, it is the most amazing fact I will ever know.
I am the result of all of this.
And i’m hung up on another of my kind.
On a girl who doesn’t like me.
7 billion people on this planet and the
words of one girl have left me in a
cataclysm of unhappiness and loneliness for six months.
And then one night, as I walked under
the full, bright moon
with the endless beauty of the stars that made me,
I realised that i’m not a alone.
I’m a single drop of water in an ocean of
a single grain of sand in a blistering desert of
people just like me,
a blade of grass in a rolling meadow of
those looking for someone to take away their loneliness
and make them whole again.
On that night,
I had an overwhelming feeling that
everything was going to be alright.
everything is going to be alright.
I’ll have put my kids to bed,
I’ll have made my wife dinner,
I’ll have put on my favourite record,
and i’ll know everything is alright.
Until that day, I guess i’ll just keep doing
what I gotta do.
