Think of yourself as a drop in the ocean. How large would you need to be to
be "significant"? Now, think of your place in the universe, how "large" do
you need to be to be recognized? We all want to be accepted by a larger
power (whatever form/belief that takes), but in our conceit we forget that
the universe, and the likes of Poseidon, are ultimately unfaithful to such
desires. Still, with that said, it does not hurt to pray for "me". Good

God and Truth are boundless and inscrutable; yet as our knowledge
increases, we continue asking impossible questions.

The poet expresss a certain irreverance when for the drop she wrestles and
pleads not to accept the place in the organiztion of things, but this is
very human for we are all all not at rest when seeing ourselves in
retrospect. The following poem expresses the organization of the

The Heirarchy

Great systems have smaller systems
That feed on divinity
Smaller sytems have lesser systems
And so on to infinity
