umber

in a moment of chaos I looked down
wishing I was walking barefoot
letting mother earth ground me
drain all worries off my veins
the only way she could

o, to feel her see my soul naked
all intentions revealed
greed
want
need

and then the sudden feeling of shame
for not using all my senses
the way she would’ve wanted me to

I looked down and found a reminder
being so small, a speck of dirt
in the vastness of the universe
