I have never experienced utter peace and solitude until the moment I was above the clouds.
To look down upon the earth, from my rocky perch of tranquility
and see the endless whirls of pinkish-gold and white cotton candy clouds
made me momentarily think of being in Heaven and taking in the view below.
I sat there in awe and wonder, contemplating how it was possible for such surreal beauty to exist
in a world full of so much splendor and so much dark, deep pain
that continually fills my soul with contradiction
wondering how it can ever be possible to accept the way things are and aren’t.
At that moment in time I realized how small I truly am, just one person, one soul
in the magnitude of this earth and this time
For this moment shall soon pass by and remain only as a memory within my mind
and my time here will be as short as a blink of the eye.
