Color by Dina Al-Awadhi

Danny in Color

 

I just feel so small

And I don’t know what to do

And nothing gets easier

The burning sunsets

The starry nights

Unthinking

Unmoving

Unchanging

The same

Life all around me

Constant

Cyclic

The life that brings death that brings life

The smiles and tears all repeated

The roots of a tree

The veins in your body

We are all connected

And yet

And yet and yet

I still feel small

Miniscule

A grain of sand

I’m a short puff of air on a cold winter night

I’m the heartbeat of my favorite song

The song that’ll be the same for everyone

The song that’ll end

Unthinking

Unmoving

Unchanging

The same

The vibrations in the air my voice

The ticking of a clock

The lingering smile

The rising sun

The sleepless moon

The flowing water

The burning magma

The space in between

The matter the dust the particles the atoms

The quarks that are color confined

Never to be seen never to be heard

But please

Please

I feel so small

I feel so small
