Hidden Realities

All there ever was                                                                                                                                                                          was filled with nothing,

our inborn fear is the silence,

the void’s emptiness is unbecoming,

yet is demanded by science,

for if nothing was never something,

gravity’s distorting bend would seal our fate,

and so life requires from the universe,

an all-encompassing plane of nothingnesses’ weight,

my mind reconciles the blank space only but through verse.
