Amidst these bright stars

Just a little poem I wrote... :)

The universe is vast
Unimaginably wide
Edgeless in eternity
And mysteries inside

There’s an irrational human fear,
a need to be unseen,
But the universe will see you
As itself will still be seen

You can’t stop yourself from looking
The universe can’t hide
You’ll see it all through life,
a roller coaster ride

There’s truth inside these deserts,
plains and seas and skies,
each one its own real mystery
just waiting to draw your eyes

In the vastness of our world
And the epic scope of time
Nothing is invisible
Everything is sublime

Each life rivals death,
each death a cause for life
The universe sees our worth
Amidst turmoil and strife

And oh the brightness of these stars
we live our lives between
reminds us that the universe
sometimes wishes to be seen.

Procrastination and Boring Books

I procrastinate!
If you're looking for something to actually read, look below, because right now I'm (hey guess what) procrastinating! I'm supposed to be reading a book for school, but it's 440 pages long and despite the fact that I read nearly everything I can get my hands on, I do not want to cleave my way through 440 pages of a book called "Guns, Germs, and Steel: the Fates of Human Societies". Honestly. It's not even that bad. It's just that it's a textbook masquerading as a real book, and that's just not fair.
But hey, I read 60 pages today. I'm proud.
I just felt like complaining.
Hello people who I haven't spoken to (um, figuratively) in ages!
Hello Blogland!
*cries* please don't make me read this book.
