Stardust by Jacqueline Nash

Have you ever laid awake at night wondering how everything in the universe started, where everything came from. When I was young I can remember laying in bed at night trying to puzzle out all the big questions. My brain seemed to go into overload and my thoughts would just keep going around in circles not getting anywhere. This poem is about one of those nights. Please feel free to comment, share or like.



As I lie here
gazing at the clear night sky,
the stars twinkling brightly,
I feel so minuscule.
Insignificant in this huge universe,
this Cosmos that goes on forever.

As I lie here
asking myself questions,
questions that cannot be answered,
I become more confused.
Going around in circles with my thoughts.
Thoughts that seem to go on forever.

As I lie here,
I wonder how it all began.
What was here before the Big Bang?
I ponder, how can nothing exist?
Are there parallel universes? Another me?
And how can something go on forever?

As I lie here,
not expecting any answers,
the greatness of the universe engulfs me.
Then the thought that comes to me is
that we are but stardust in this huge cosmos
and our energy will continue in the universe forever.  ©
