    Standing at waters edge
    Contemplating my existence
    Awed by the miniscule dot I am
    And pondering what impact
    My living could have on
    This grand panorama.

    Is there truly a line
    Of demarcation
    Between me and
    "Somewhere Out There"
    Or is it merely my tainted perception
    And perspective
    Blurred and obscured
    That makes me believe so?

    Like the untraveled and feared beliefs
    Of the unknown centuries ago
    If I attempt to reach the end
    Will I fall off earth's surface
    And cease to be no more
    Falling into a nameless void
    Neither living nor dead
    Neither bodily formed nor spirited soul
    Neither solid nor liquid, unformed?

    Does this divide
    Even exist
    Or does my own fear
    Place it there?

    What, truly, be the coordinates
    And dimensions
    By breadth and depth
    And scope and slope
    Of my life's geometric plane?

    Where does my horizon lie
    And what keeps me from it? ​

    Thank you, Sister Tswana! Yeah, this is just another of my old pieces. I guess I was feeling kinda philosophic at the time. lol

    But, no worries. I know from whence cometh my help.
