These Selves

Circling like planets within this existence,
An endless universe of selves. Floating and
Circling, sometimes in shadow, sometimes in
Full light. Full sight.

Tiny, moon self, closest by. Surges of mood, like
Tides. Beyond, galaxies of selves. Venus, Mars,
Jupiter, Saturn - even a milky way. Universe
Of self, stretching in all directions. Endless,
Infinite, unbounded.

Now look at today's troubles. Centred on this
Tiny spot on a tiny planet, surrounded by all
Infinity. Self is bigger than this. Vast.
Immeasurable. Close your eyes. See infinity. Grasp
Your own hand, and leap.
