SUPERNOVA – THE RECIPE FOR ME
Here’s a big number:
seven billion, billion,billion.
Atoms in a normal body…
Given my weight you can add 20%.
2/3 rds of this number can be discounted
as they are Hydrogen atoms…
basic building blocks.
So 2.8 billion,billion,billion
parts of my body were created in supernovas.
All the interesting stuff, the bits that make brains,
The blood,the goo, the heart…
All escaped the pull of a star,
At close to the speed of light.
We are not talking just one event…
Given the multiplicity of atoms…
We are talking an infinite number,
Of catastrophic events…
An innumerable amount of stars
Died in the most spectacular way,
Just to create me.
And not just me…
Every single person, animal, vegetable, mineral, planet and moon…
Created out of destruction.
Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva….
Just spin that little thought around in your head…
and ask yourself a simple question,
Is it accidental?
Or is it by design?
Only God knows…
and that’s the truth.
