audacity

You ask how I have the audacity to think I matter when there are 7 billion people on this earth

But you would never take the sea and deny its wonder

You would never take a rose and deny its beauty

And you would never take a dollar bill and deny its worth

You ask how I have the audacity to think I matter

When you listen to the rain and feel peace as each drop hits the ground and you lose track of time

You ask how I have the audacity to think I matter

When there are more dollar bills

More roses

More stars

And more rain than there are people and yet

Every day you find beauty in the littlest of things

But somehow

You have the audacity to think none of us matter

When we all have something to give

Something to love

Something to change

So I ask you

How can you have the audacity to think none of us matter

When there are 7 billion people on this earth

And 5 quadrillion square feet of earth to change?

My name is Erin and I like all things beautiful - beautiful art, beautiful music, beautiful writing, etc. I like to write because as much as I enjoy talking, I can be pretty lousy at it. I'm currently attending graduate school in small-town Indiana while involved in a full-time job of daydreaming with some writing on the side. You'll find that most of my writing will have some sort of advice or positive encouragement, but I write like that because I believe the world is full of too much negative news that I don't want to contribute to - I want to be a spreader of good news. So that's what I'm here for. I'm here as a believer of good things, a lover of all things beautiful, and a spreader of joy.
