earth: meaning, 2

There is fear
that we are
wandering blind

Hurtling through
space and time

uncertain of the
why and how
yet still going forth
anyway.

Why?

How?

We are here;

whether there is
dirt or concrete
beneath our feet

whether there
is a roof over our
heads or only sky

whether our bellies
are swollen with
hunger or gluttony–

that all of these
exist simultaneously,

that our brains were
shaped for remembering,

that is the why
and the how.

Let us never forget
that there is more
beyond our eyes
and always see what
is before them.
