The world is small, fully known,
With no mysteries at all.
From the Pacific to the Atlantic,
We, as a species, have seen it all.
At least that’s how we carry ourselves.
Yet in times like this,
We realize the world is alive.
It responds and shows us just how little we know.
And within days, we realize the world is not small.
Nothing is fully known, and mysteries remain.
This uncertainty is what we may try to ignore.
But, cautious we should remain.
But Caution shouldn’t equal fear.
For the stories are right,
And fear can lead down an angry path.
Instead, we should stay humble,
And be reminded of the things that hold value.
