Three Seconds-A Lifetime - Poem by Abhimanyu Raman

It was dark in the beginning,
then came light
So many random particles exploding,
In that time, which was neither day nor night
It happened so long ago
This universe born of tumult, was not an escape
But the only way to go
Matter and energy, twin faces,
of the very same coin
I cannot make anything of their struggle
One led to the other, but still..

There were no birds or wind,
nor even a sky to speak of
Blackness all around,
and some light in the middle (Or was it Hope?)
Three seconds, and the very basis,
Of our love, our lies, our truth and our trust
was laid, never to be forgotten again

It took eons for us to form,
and appreciate the beauty inherent in that chaos
Every fold of sky is a frontier
Every star, a milestone we cannot conquer
But evolution has gifted us sight,
to look back in time,
to where the stars began
And for now, that would seem enough
