Poetry Corner – The Big Bang

The Big Bang

Everything existed in the beginning

infinitesimally small

Boundlessly projecting itself

across a blank void

Weaving the matrix

Simultaneously creating

and destroying everything in its path

Affecting the past

Manifesting the future

Riding the arrow of time

into infinity

Leaving us in its wake

like a desert mirage

Nothing exists

it's only the light we see,

how it used to be

Look on the bright side

carpe diem!

Poetry Corner – hold your head up

hold your head up

How have I, once so proud

to share with others become so despondent

hiding away in the darkness of isolation

How have I aspired to remain anonymous

when all I strive for is notoriety,

How come I am holding my head in shame

when I used to carry it so high

How have I sunk into such a deep hole

when I used to see over the tallest peaks

How have I given up when

there’s still so much left to do

so much to share

so much 

yet to be done…

For now I'll remain 

in the dark where I belong.
