In this moment…
I am alone.
And though I embrace this stillness…
this periodic passenger of mine
that finds a paradise in that peace,
I know that less than a heartbeat away
someone else is alone.
And I, in my infinite power
have nothing to offer but myself.
And that is all the paradise they want,
and in this moment,
all that I am empowered to give.
If I give it away,
the Universe expands
and I am forever changed.
Not because I had to,
But because it was the right thing to do
…in this moment.
