Significant Or Not? - Poem by Pradeep Dhavakumar

When I saw the mice inside a trap
Felt how helpless their life is.
And when I saw ants slowly pass by
Felt how unfortunate their existence is.
And when I thought of the bacteria
Felt how irrelevant their life is.
And when I compared the Bacteria to Mine
Knew how Significant my life is.

When I looked around the city to see
Realized how pebble like my life is.
And when I compared it to this huge world
Realized how grain like this city is.
And when I compared it to the galaxy
Realized how speck like this world is.
And when I compared the Galaxy to Mine
Knew how Insignificant my life is.
