To Be But.
To be but a snail on a path, moving at a minute pace, but with a goal in mind nevertheless.
by Benjamin Sorvel
To be but a tree growing upwards, closer to the source of life, oblivious to the fact that too much will kill you.
To be but an undelivered parcel, in the wrong hands, full of useful things, but nothing to use them for.
To be but a person thinking these things each and every day, with no perception of reality, but still, really perceptive.
