In the beginning, there was darkness.
There was peace;
There was silence;
There was nothingness.
Then how did we come to be?
Then how did we begin?
Then how did we become this?
How did we become this graceful, smart, and ever evolving?
The Egyptians believe that there was a low sound.
A sound that got louder, and louder.
A sound that turned into the hissing and spitting of fire.
A sound that caused an eruption and made us.
The Greeks and Romans think it was the Gods.
The Indians too.
Darwin believed in evolution.
The Scots know it was the Great Mother.
But you know what I think?
I think that we simply are.
We opened our eyes.
We felt our hearts beat.
We felt our souls stir.
And that is how we came to be.
