Have you ever stood on the edge of a cliff?
Have you ever looked over a precipice?
Did you feel strong and tall?
Or did you feel small and weak?
Have you ever stared into the night sky?
Have you ever tried to count the stars?
Did you feel far away and insignificant?
Or did you feel like the most relevant being on earth?
Have you ever had an empty heart?
Have you ever been so full you could burst?
Do you know who you are and what you're worth
Any more than you know about the man accross the world?
Have you ever been broken?
There is a time when it feels as though your heart has been ripped out of your chest
When all the distance to the ground
All the numbers of the stars
When those things seem to matter so much
And at the same time don't seem to matter at all
Though we are so small
We are so strong
And so relavent
We are so broken
But what can be put together that has not been in pieces first
It is when we acknowledge our failures
Only then, that we truely succede
When we admit that we are not the focus
And that a little boy down the street
Or the woman on the bus
Have dreams and ambitions
As important as our own
It is when we dedicate our lives to the lives of others
It is when we die to ourselves
That we live
