I pity the forgetful little ant


I'm egocentric as the solar system
So sometimes I forget
To be calm 
About my own irrelevance

Sometimes I forget

That I'm fine with that

That I'm just an ant
Walking and weaving my way
Through these sturdy, decorated pillars
Befriending them and their ghost and their wildfires

Don't forget how small you are
little ant
Smaller than the dust that you can't step over

i can't smile because of it happening.
and sometimes making lemonade goes wrong.
you just end up with sour lemon juice.
life doesn't always have a happy ending.
that's just how the it is.

Write about a new star. What do you name it and why? (nervousbibliophile)

A flash of light illuminates the sky. A new star, small and pure white, has appeared in the heavens. It may seem insignificant, compared to the billions of other stars in the universe. But each star exists separately, its own shape and size, with its own imperfections. This new star is called Singula. Singula means "individual" in Latin. This represents that this new star deserves...
