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.
