your true origin 

You think of yourself
as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong 
to this world of dust and matter.
Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin.

  1. It happens that sometimes we are so selfish that we forget where we come from. We cannot be grateful for who gave us life. Therefore, our life is empty and aimless. I like your reflection. It allows us to stop for a moment, in silence, to meditate on our way of life. Regards.
