Planet Earth

The earth is beautiful

a jewel floating in space

the more I find out about it

the more in awe I am.

I am privileged to be here

to have the opportunity of this experience

so many beautiful people so many inspiring souls,

for the earth to be at the right distance from the sun,

for the sun to be of a specific composition,

for the moon to stop the planet from moving erratically

if the earth were 30 per cent bigger, it would have a much larger atmosphere which most probably would be unable to support life as we know it.

Still, some take all of this for granted

they fail to see the miracle of our existence.
