The poetic city: “Life before Life”

Life before Life  

I am a bubble… 
A bubble of possibility 
in a sea of infinite possibilities. 
Straight from the Big Bang 
I will arrive as a consequence
of countless contingencies.
The odds of me becoming me 
are impossible to calculate.
But once I happen, the inevitable 
will take over and I will be 
the only me I could possibly be. 
Until that moment, I will remain 
an urge… a yearning for expression 
driven by all the forces of a universe 
compelled to know itself in all possible ways.
