To Be Human

by Nick Andrea

As all the little ants are marching
Are they aware of the vast and boundaryless Earth beneath their feet?
Do they know
That as they walk in Asheville
We walk also in Texas;
In China;
In Antarctica?

And when they look up into the sky
Do they see the cosmos?
Do they know they are on a spaceship
And that their neighbors
Are Mars, Venus, and Jupiter?

And do they experience
That where Earth ends
And Heaven begins
Is within themselves?
Do they remember
Their true nature
As they stand in line
At the checkout counter
After work?


About NickAndrea19

My goal has always been and continues to be the liberation of minds, my own and what influence I may have on others, to perceive the extraordinary beauty all around us. To this end, I write, play music, and design websites. Don't hesitate to contact me for more information about any of these activities. :)
