Dark Matter

We are surrounded by beauty
Every day,
Air in our lungs,
Sun on our faces,
Birds in the trees.

We are surrounded by horror
Every day,
Diseases on the move,
Forests destroyed,
People waging war.

But we are mostly
Surrounded by nothingness
Every day,
A nothingness
That takes up the fullness of space,
A nothingness responsible
For the majority of happenings
In our world and beyond.

It is a nothingness
That we are unable to perceive
For now at least,
With any of our senses,
Unable to understand
With any of our great intellect,

Each one of us
Only able to absorb
A tiny fraction
Of what is going on around us

And you
Perceiving a different tiny fraction
Than me.
