Counting to One by medomx12


									            Counting to One

          How many skies
          has the boomeranging
          moon flown over?
          One, which breathes.

          How many lives
          have you and I lived?
          One, deepening inside
          births and deaths.

          How many humans
          are in the world?
          One, with splendidly
          many bodies and souls.

          How many religions
          are there?
          One, tucked into
          softest of hearts.

          How many universes?
          Count to one
          until the stars
          fall out of it.

          How many questions
          are there?
          One big one.

          What is the question?
          That's it.
