That stretched wide in front of me,
In its never ending eternal glory.
Waves of relief washed over me;
I was filled with peace and tranquility.
Thank god, I was still tiny, and
My troubles 'n' tribulations still petty.
The weight of the world and its
Complicated affairs could go take a walk.
Given all my obsession with the
Minuscule cosmos I surrounded myself with,
I was still but a drop, nothing but a drop.
(Yes the ocean would be impoverished without me,
but that loss would amount to barely a drop.)
Oh, that feeling - humbling, yet so comforting;
How exhilarating that I can surely take a moment
To do nothing, but simply sit back and enjoy,
As the other drops play their part...
