I am one,
made of many.
I am the sum of parts,
so beautiful,
yet seemingly insignificant.

I am connected to these parts,
and they,
to themselves.
I am the space between them,
of which there seems so much.

I am the light,
and the dark.
I am the visible,
and the invisible,
and unheard.
I am adored,
and I am ignored.

I am omniscient,
but can never truly understand,
my self,
my part,
the whole,
the one,
as long as I remain ignorant.
