A Poem by The They
"

Dissolve into the night sky.

"

Sometimes

When the sun goes down,

But does not take with it the weight of daily life,

I find my eyes looking up

To the lights that share their wisdom with my troubled mind.

 

Most days

My mind finds times when it acquiesces to the struggle

Of the pressures that the world thrusts upon it,

But still it finds refuge in the stars

That shelter from the ever-shifting flow

Of the illusions that press on me to change.

 

Every night

When my eyes travel the infinity above my head,

I am freed from careless thoughts that drift aimlessly in my mind

The openness of space greets me with its silent embrace.

 

Send me adrift around the stars,

Past the endless nebulas, planets and their suns!

Orbit me around the galaxies that stand indifferent to our human time:

A blink of an eye that’s quickly forgotten in the infinite.

Up there I find myself as the calm that permeates the emptiness

As I feel all those careless boundaries peel away…

It's easy to be absorbed in one's own life; to be the king of one's own universe. I find this a humble reminder that we are all just tiny fragments of the infinite universe. And I think sometimes that's nice. To be a tiny, insignificant piece of an infinite mechanism that keeps on turning and evolving regardless of our existence. In a way, it gives more meaning to the things you do, if you know that you are in no way required to do them.
I really like the vastness of this poem.

I like the quiet escapism of this. There is always a wish to touch something bigger, something less mundane.

Dear The They,

Yes, the scale of the Universe simply dwarfs us, putting us, our trials, the very world in perspective, showing us how small we are. The Universe about us has a lot to teach us, but few listen. Thanks for reminding us of this lesson.

Excellent write that was greatly enjoyed.

Best regards,

Rick

Sometimes we need that silence to heal our soul; allow it to breathe. We need those moments where the world sleeps to reflect and think clearly. I love the stars and the night sky so this piece drew me in and held my attention.
