Poem #278

No matter how strong you may feel, 
life has a way of cutting you off at the knees. 
It’s so sudden, so unexpected because  
human conceit doesn’t even let us believe 
that we are so small and that the world  
isn’t here to serve our needs.  

There’s liberation and happiness 
in learning how deeply insignificant you are. 
Just one link in a big chain,  
no different than the rest.  

Human enough to influence your tiny space, 
but yet so blissfully unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
