What All This Is

Look upon the stars,
as we spin about the sky.
Seek the tiny light of Mars,
And start to wonder why
upon a plane, so infinite,
a simple ball of dirt
could be seen with value intrinsic
and endless stocks of worth.

For, floating next to Jupiter,
the Earth must seem so tiny.
With contrast to the Sun it’s small,
And not one bit as shiny.

But to take that view of Earth is wrong,
it simply ignores this:
Size and shine do not affect
our significance.

One may overlook,
if they know not how to find,
the simple joy found in a book,
or in a child’s eyes.

Look upon the people,
as they huddle in a mass.
See all the mistakes they make
“For what?” you may just ask.
Upon this world, so populated,
a simple friend or foe,
could be misconstrued or calculated
to not have worth to show.

For next to a great man,
a person may seem cheap.
Compared to those in Hollywood,
appearances are meek.

But to take that view of us is wrong,
it simply ignores this:
Others’ strength and beauty measure not
our significance.

One may overlook,
if they know not how to find,
the endless days and strength it took,
to make it all this time.

Look upon a mirror,
as you gaze upon yourself.
See all the flaws that you may see,
and question your own wealth.

Inside a pond, so full of fish,
your presence may seem small,
and as you ask yourself “What is all this?”
there may be no response at all.

For next to those you most esteem,
you may feel flawed and vile,
and compared to others it may seem,
that you are lagging by a mile.

But to take that view of you is wrong,
it simply ignores this:
All your flaws and faults bear not upon
your magnificence.

One may overlook,
if they know not how to find,
the hearts that you have overtook
with beauty, fair and kind.

So let the world look past you,
as one may overlook the Earth.
And let them underestimate
your value and your worth.
For when I gaze upon the sky at night,
or look upon a crowd,
I see more than others might,
And know what I have found.
