Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Scale.”

A speck so minute

In the universe so vast

Existing in the blink of an eye

Of time, moving by so fast.

I have but a moment

In the cosmic calendar

To live all my life

And enjoy the earth’s splendor.

I am a microscopic dot

On  the scale of the earth

Can I leave a mark for generations

That is of some worth?

A voice inside me answered

Of course you can, it said

Being small and short-lived

Are not barriers to getting ahead.
