a toast to the small

small, small
i find my
world
so small
yet in that
smallness
i find
greatness

i know few people
i do few things
i own few belongings
i go few places
yet in that
few
i find that
nothing is lacking

each person’s life
is really small
in that i find
no problem at all

for in realizing
your smallness
you truly realize
your greatness

you are great
when you fully love
the few people
you have in your life

you are great
when you fully do
the few things
you do in your life

you are great
when you see the small
for what they
truly are

size or number
do not determine
the importance
of something

the smallest of things
has its purpose
has its meaning
has its greatness

remember that the small
is what makes the large

the beach is the beach
grain by grain
the ocean is the ocean
drop by drop
the universe is the universe
star by star

the universe is contained
within a grain of sand
in your smallness
is your greatness
you are the universe
