by Michael, age 15
My eyes daze shut.
In a flash, I’m gone.
Venturing through a vast cosmos
Venturing through an unparalleled unknown
My eyes twitch,
My hairs itch,
I’m suddenly, all alone.
Stuck at the rudiments of space and time
Trapped. In a dense formation of preternatural slime
BANG! The Earth is alive.
An angry sphere of flaming fire
Molten. Monstrous. Magnificent.
Fazed in response to the performance before me
Trembling at awe to the magnificence of glory
Questioning my fear of the flame.
An unanticipated cry of irreparable climax,
Displays of divine emotion.
Shrieks and shakes and trembling tremors,
The melting of molten crust.
The Earth is formed,
In all its glory.
A true spectacle of lava and light,
Shrouded by the enigma of night.
