Iain S. Thomas

“I wonder at the stars every second I can't see them, knowing they're there and that the only reason we can't see them is that our own star blinds us. I wonder if people are like that. If there are just billions and billions of people out there who could shine light on us if we stopped staring at the thing that was blinding us. I wonder how people manage to love and hurt each other at the same time. I think about every person who passes me on the street and what it feels like to be them. I wonder if I'll ever do anything real with my life. I wonder if anything I do actually matters. I wonder how long it'll take for people to forget me completely when I'm gone. I think about the time it take someone to answer the phone when I call them and if there's a conversation going on that I'm not a part of on the other end, where they're debating with someone else whether or not to pick up. I wonder how much of what people say, they actually mean. I think about how many ants I've killed in my life and I wonder if God ever thinks about us in the same distracted way. I wonder if anyone's listening when we pray. I like to think that I'd listen, if I could hear anything at all.”
