A rocky giant was formed from the black,
eons ago,
among anonymous ranks of faceless brethren-
from nothing came something,
and from that something came
everything-
out of the darkness came
light-
out of turmoil came
a foundation-
out of thin air came
substance,
out of the frost came
warmth,
and out of it all came
life-
simple, determined, rudimentary life,
basic and willing and fully unaware of
its vast potential-
the blankest of slates,
oblivious to what was to
come-
it has worn many masks, life-
nurturer,
scavenger,
predator,
and prey,
the wounded,
the withering,
the proud,
the sympathetic,
the content,
and the conqueror-
most of us are guaranteed a distinct
beginning,
a defined middle,
and a conclusive end-
the last page will be read by all that pick
up the book, that much is certain,
but it’s how we interpret
the middle that truly matters*
