The Soul's Freedom
from the crippling bonds of earth
to float on cold hydrogen.
In the darkness of interstellar space,
I walk through clouds of condensing dust
witnessing the birth of stars,
watching planets aggregate,
and life emerge.
deeply of the void
knowing that subatomic particles
will merge to form oxygen atoms
to fill my lungs.
to the echoes of creation
reverberating across the universe
and join my voice to the song.
