How Small We Are
By Mark Edgemon

I look up and see giants walking the Earth,
The point of view of the ant, who does not know why;
Just now and only now, is the knowledge in which we dwell.
Now I need some food; now I need some warmth;
Now I need to know, I'm not the only one.
Even in the company of my fellows,
Life below can be a lonely existence.
To see the celestial beings moving about
With a sense of urgency, while I just want perpetually.
To see His Hands in all things and I just hurt and reach,
Most of my waking hours, day after day.
Battles raging in the heavens; life and death as we are not aware;
Unconcerned by destiny; not moved by the harmony of nature;
Just asking; just wanting; never searching to see what it's all about!
