There's More to Life

Than what we see,

touch and feel—what we know is real;

And yet what will set you free is not

what you could be, but rather

who you are.

See, it’s not the mentions

that sets you apart—it’s the stars.

Listen as they glisten, vibrations in trees.

The ten thousand things

immortalized in the cosmos.

To live within (beyond) what you are;

It's a perpetual feeling— nameless undying healing.

The link between universe and you,
