Sonder
I ponder, wander
The wonder
A being
Obscure
Thought
Brought to me
People
Made to see
This world revolves
Around, yes
But not around me
Sonder
His eyes are deep
Sonder
She lacks sleep
Sonder
Their secret keeps
Will I know?
Slow
Glow
Show
Where do they go?
Sonder
Talk to me
Be
I want to see
You exist
Split
Lit
Writ
Sonder
The world is too large
Like the stars
Mars
The cars
Sonder
She's quiet
He's loud
That face
That sound
I see her
Surface
I want to get deep
This glance I've had
Is only a peep
Sonder

AHHHHHHH asdfasjdflkasjdfkl;

AHHHHHHH asdfasjdflkasjdfkl; That video blew my mind. I'm feeling slightly dizzy with such a perspective shift... thank you for sharing. Also, I'm going to give my initial reaction to the poem before watching the video (because I like to approach art before knowing the context first): it felt like a lullaby to me. I kept picturing a child in a womb somehow, because the lilt of this poem sounded like the swishing of a heartbeat to me. Your rhythm was soothingly hypnotic.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬
