The world is full of so much beauty that goes unseen to the naked eye.
I wonder what it would be like if I were able to physically view every breathtaking landmark, body of water, mountain that this world has to offer. Sometimes I picture myself in the center of a lake, floating peacefully among nothing but a cool crisp summer air, and water that is at a comfortable temperature. Sometimes I allow myself to think about what it would be like if I could vanish into the water, and become just another drop. I wonder how easy it would be to evaporate into a fresh lake, ignoring all my problems, and becoming a part of one enormous body. Sometimes I wonder where I’m going in life, whether I will be a drop of water that turns into something larger, or just stray from the path and avoid becoming a part of anything large at all cost. Maybe it is much easier to look at a lake as peaceful, then it Is to actually be a lake.
The sun is so beautiful from the water, the way it gleams from the sky and reflects off the ripples created. Sometimes I wish the sunshine would follow me wherever I went, so I wouldn’t have to feel alone all the time, but what is the point of straying from the path if I don’t enjoy being alone? I worry about becoming a drop In the water and forming into an entire body of it more than I worry about being alone, I am terrified that the sun won’t follow me, but I am more afraid I will become the body of water that the sun won’t reflect on because there will always be a cloud covering it.
