Embodying The Universe

I was once told I am the universe
It’s body and it’s mind
I’ve existed endlessly
Through every moment in time
And in that second I was puzzled
I saw myself as much too small
And though they tried to help me comprehend 
I couldn’t help but think them false

But then I looked into mirror And I saw planets
And stars
And then I blinked
And as fast as they came 
They were gone
But it’s okay because I think 
I finally understand
How the universe exists
In something trivial as man
