Infinitesimal

I know I am infinitesimal;
a speck of dust wedged
between sidewalk cracks.

My extremely small significance
may never be measured in my lifetime of lack.

Yet, perhaps the true question always remains,
‘Did I make a difference in a minute or a day?’

Did I knock someone’s world off its pendulum of rhythm,
when I brought my storm of silence and truth?
My abnormal thoughts and visions from youth?

Giving a new approach to life.
A new way to look between sorrow and strife.

If so, then yes, my deed as a speck is done.

I have crossed many paths as I searched for the one;
then suddenly realized it was there all along;
the speck of dust hidden there on the lawn.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
