Dust

Like just another speck of dust dancing in the Light,
I’m afraid of falling into obscurity,
Of being swept up and lost in the detritus of life.
For the moment the radiance and promise of brilliance keeps me afloat,
But I can see the millions of particles around me: there’s not enough room in the spotlight for all of us.
Exerting all my strength into one moment is crippling
But I have to try; I am afraid of the dark.
The darkness that is looming just beneath the feet of our existence.
To be just another fleck of waste lost within the heap isn’t enough for me,
But to have out shined the rest, for even a second will have set me free..
