Against the Cosmos

I came across this picture on Instagram this morning, taken by a young man from Mexico - a very young man because he just graduated from high school a few weeks ago and says he's off to college soon. Now there are pictures and there are pictures. Some are flawless and perfect but leave you cold. Then some speak to you on a deeper level, making an instant connection that you can't quite put a finger to. This one awoke poetry in me.

On the edge of a world
I don't always understand,
I stand, a small presence, 
because I must
because I am
because in this infinite world
it couldn't have been a mistake
that I am.
My presence may be blurred 
in a world 
I don't always understand.
But I am. 

Here's to you, gess8
