Details of Existance Poem by Thomas Shelton


Everything we know about ourselves is defined by the characteristics we see in the world
We only know ourselves by comparison of these details
Without this observation of our surroundings we are lost
No more or less than anything else we could experience
Built from the same materials that surround us at every moment
Our detailed personalities are of our own design
We are no more grandiose than we are insignificant to the world
Our existence is only that of our surroundings
We are exactly what we choose and make ourselves out to be in our lives
