Today's prompt for the 30 Day Blogging Challenge on writing.com:
I am but one of billions of people. I am but one of trillions of objects in the universe. I am trivial, inconsequential, insignificant.
Small as I am, I think. I feel. I dream. Billions of thoughts pass through my mind, some trivial, some profound. My emotions are a tide, rising and falling with awesome crests and ominous valleys as I ride. My dreams create worlds of fantasy and fear, characters of beauty and bleakness, plots of suspense and sensuality.
There is a spark in me. There is flare that gleams with the power of creation. It flows through me and out of my fingers like the nozzle of a rocket. Sometimes it's wrong and devours itself in a conflagration of confusion. Sometimes it's right and soars, carrying me along with it.
I am both passenger and vessel, fueled by something bigger than myself yet contained within me. I am small and large, negligible and vital.
I am alive.
