When I Am... Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

When I am dealt a bad deal in life
With my stars arrayed treacherously against me,
I wish to escape into the black holes of the Universe
From where there is no escape or a glimmer of hope
Unless the story of which we may yet be unaware
Unfolds luminously in the field of vision, on the other side, somewhere,
A vision which we presently cannot vouch for or foresee
A mystery, a wormhole like story, which enfolds me endearingly!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem has been written considering the quirkiest possibilities of the Universe. For example, the wormhole hypothesis predicts that if one were to fall into a black hole, one might be sucked down a tunnel (called the “Einstein-Rosen bridge”) and shot out into a “white hole” into a parallel universe unscathed.
