Picture your existence on this planet as a short, |
colored, painted line on a giant wall.
On this wall, are millions of other lines
running side by side, with names under them.
On top of this mat of colors
are etched dates in ascending order.
Each line on the wall represents people
who are now living, or once lived.
As you walk along side this wall,
you go past every humans life on this planet;
and you begin to realize how mortal you really are,
and how feeble your life is among all of the others;
but when you remove your tiny imprint from the rest,
the subsequent entries can change immensely
in color and length.
