I am something, yet I am nothing
I am something, because
I am a son, brother, cousin, and a good husband to my special family.
I'm a driver who could meet you by accident and affect your life inadvertently.
I'm a friend who can make your life easier or harder.
If we are all connected, my actions would affect you. A ripple in the water.
if I am spotted doing something abnormal, people would notice and take action.
if I die, my family and friends would be very hurt and sad.
yet I am nothing.
I have been here for less than a century, yet the oceans, mountains, and sun have been here since the beginning of time.
I am, but just a spec of dust compared to the size of my surroundings, ie, city, state, country, and world.
If I was on the crowded highway, you would never even see me.
I may be 200 pounds, but I am lighter than a feather when compared to the weight of the ocean, mountains, or a single building.
If I am in the middle of the ocean, desert, or forest, then I could never be heard or seen.
I am no better than you or them, I am just another Joe Blo on this vast earth, doing the best I can till I part ways.
If I were to die, the world would not even blink an eye. Much different than a world leader or celebrity.
Also if I were to die, it would be weeks before anyone would notice.
