In the pale light of midnight I tried to take flight


But my wings were too weak and the stars were too bright


 


So I waited a week til the winter winds blew


Stars were shrouded in clouds and the moon was too


 


Not a thing alive witnessed my wings unfold


As my breath grew quick and my heart grew bold


 


And soon I was soaring, oh, upwards and on


Til the sky was all ‘round and the ground was gone


 


And I watched as each object, each person, each place


Became one glowing orb spinning slowly in space


 


And I thought to myself, ‘through the eyes of a bird


This life and this Earth seem entirely absurd’


 


Then I suddenly felt indescribably small


And wondered if anything mattered at all


 


Like what people wished for or what people felt


Or whether the ice caps would finally melt


 


Then, I realized, after an hour or two


That things matter, because, they matter to you


 


Although what you do won’t change much from up here


It can comfort or crush those you find yourself near


 


This universe may be enormous and strange


But look close to home and there’s much you can change


 


And now that I know it, that’s just what I’ll do


Informed and enthused by my new point of view


 


It seems that such questions as grand as existence


Can only be solved from a reasonable distance
