what if?

The sky opens up
and only now I can see
that there is nothing above,
no blue ceiling
in which the stars would hang
and the Moon or the Sun would walk around
The limits of my existence are gone
there are no borders or one-way roads
nothing keeps me on the ground
besides my own thoughts
which create the idea about
who I am and what has to be done
But this idea melts
facing the emerging concept:
maybe I’m a citizen of the Universe
just residing on the planet called Earth?
