Not subject to scale

We think
ourselves
complete,
so unique,
so one
in a million,
but we shrink
to ants from
a giant’s stance –
will you look
up as you pass?
Do you notice
the greatness
of being a part
of something
bigger,
how our
depth
is deeper
beneath
the surface,
the reaches of
our souls
not subject
to scale?
Whoever
walks
the trails
alone
returns
home
whole.

    i think about this concept quite a lot actually. It is easy to get so caught up in our ‘little’ lives that we forget there is a whole world out there – we are a part of – we contribute in some way. great post.

    • Thank you, Melanie! I love Calvin and Hobbes and own the entire collection. Bill Watterson always seems to strike a chord on my heartstrings and funny bone xylophone. Thank you for sharing this link with me. Hope you are having a good day, my friend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
