Akbar Qahar, '17

We all have big egos
Even the ones that don’t
We all think we’re important
Or that our insignificance matters
Everything is made smaller
Into little fathomable measurements 
The reality that everything is out of control
That everything can be taken away
And nothing is consistent 
In the entire span of time, except time
It’s what we rely on
It’s what we break down
Into years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes 
Seconds, milliseconds, and so forth
To make ourselves believe
That we have an impact
The world or universe 
Both of which can be taken away
In an instance and vanish into nothing
We are comforted by the idea of stability
The idea that infinity exists
An idea we should be fearful of
