A particle’s journey
I came from the nothingness of empty space
Created in time by loving embrace
I have traveled beyond the realms of the mind
Part of an element and things so divine.
I sat inside the heart of a star
bounced and battered but didn’t get far
Millions of years I stayed as a light
finally released to start my flight.
I have been part of the things people see
a creature at sea and the leafs on a tree
In my creation, I build upon the part that is good
and keep laying layers to be understood.
Each stage is needed, each growth endured
to merge into a being that is becoming matured
I fade out and leave for a period of time
but always return in search of the light to find.
From the beginning to the end a marvelous blend
in awareness self to further extend
I seek the answer of the physical being
I will feel its essence without ever seeing.
I create with a thought, grand designs
that once left me confused and my mind in decline
Now the mirror that reveals the spiritual truth
shinning so brightly to be put to good use
Humbled by the reflection left for me to find
I am part of the path for all to bind.
