It is easy to lose oneself
gazing into the vastness of space.
The calm beating of the heart begins to mirror
the gently pulsing twinkle of the stars.
The consciousness is perfectly absorbed
into the deep void where no light can be detected.
We cannot disregard our captivation
with this cosmic birthplace
where the microscopic constituents of our existence
were created among the stardust.
As we contemplate our comparative diminutiveness,
it is a humbling thought
that we do not have the capacity to even begin
to fathom the true magnitude of the universe.
We are all merely pawns
in the never-ending game of existence.
