EX NIHILO
(2/19/16)


we wander
about

drifting

seeking
some purpose
in this
life

never seeming
quite
to succeed

we lack
meaning

we feel
incomplete

empty

we fail
to understand
that this chronic
gnawing
definitively
verifies
our existence

a presence
quite phenomenal
in its cosmological
rarity

when
we realize
that our nothing
is actually
a precious something

then we
finally
shall have
everything
