Content in quantum storms

Dwarfed like insects we strive as I gaze at the stars at night.
Their distant light gives me the perspective to fight the hollowness of our monumental plight.
Instead of turning away in fright, I gaze hopelessly at the sheer unobtainable heights.

Wealth and possessions mean nothing to me
_____I let art and words carry their weight.
People dissolve into white noise.
_____As vague spectres I let them dissipate.

Tiny men go about their tiny lives, tugged by the dull drag of monotony.
They are a distant hum just within earshot;
_____reverberating endlessly – accepting unquestioningly.

I long to see through the haze;
_____to crawl along and face the sun;
_____to see the patterns which govern our world and our recycled flaws to which we are all numb;
_____the mistakes which we’re doomed to repeat;
_____that our ape-brain narcissism demands to play out eternally.

We are blown about by quantum storms of chaos.
We are the ashes of stars rearranged; the playthings of the cosmos.
What is it we think we stand above?
_____The resonant sun?
_____The droning earth?
We stand confronted by benign indifference;
_____of our endeavours and dreams the universe does not even flinch.

Dwarfed like insects we strive as I gaze at the stars at night.
Their distant light gives me the perspective to fight the hollowness of our monumental plight.
Instead of turning away in fright, I gaze hopelessly at the sheer unobtainable heights;
_____Contented.
