direction is relative, y'know?
up, down, left, right, in front, behind,
they don't exist without something to base them on.
they don't exist in the universe, only in our idea of it.
from our perspective, each night,
we look up into the endless sky.
we see all the stars as being above us,
twinkling like angels.
but it's just as true,
from only a slightly different perspective,
to say we're staring down
into an infinite, sparkling abyss,
with the earth gripping our ankles,
keeping us from falling.
just a thought.
