What happened before the Beginning?

Before the beginning there was One

And where One was


And where One was not

Was not


All that existed was One

And aside from One

There was nothing.


One pondered One’s own existence

And searched within for a meaning to life.

Was there a need for a physical cycle

And without time would the cycle end?

Without interaction

How would One learn and grow?

One reasoned those reasons

That were known

Experienced those emotions within

And noted a spirit of truth

beginning to emerge


One found a wall of futility

in those labors.


Then a light began to glow

Within One

And the light grew in intensity


It could not be contained.


That light was the understanding

that life had no meaning as it was.

Life had to be shared with others

If it was to have purpose.


Yet, for One to share

Would mean One would be One

No More.


Exploding Into selflessness

And giving into sacrifice

One became the seed for all

And from that tiny seed

All that there is
