as it seems… there is a you
that experiences something other
like a wave with its ocean,
or a particle of air with its vast space
as if you, the wave
join with the other, the ocean
and yet,

also absolutely
something larger
now

a deeper order

create me like i created you
in the space
which lies deeper than you know

it is where, you see,
i first found
the concept of your
decision
to think outside your unexpected life
and roar instead

impactful.
