My take on how the earth was formed,


Through aeons past the galaxies grew,
The stars shone bright the heavens too.
Dark matter thrown into the loop,
Creating black holes from the soup.

Atoms, leptons, quarks seemed to sense,
The coming of the Cosmos hence.
From nucleus gases particles adorned,
The planet earth and the sun was born.

Building blocks to our world came,
On meteorites, Earth would never be the same.
The sea, The land, Only one of each you know,
Just like the Cosmos started to grow.

To earth an asteroid gave a glancing kiss,
The moon and tides were formed out of this.
The land on earth, the stars above; separate,
As though They've fallen out of love.

As mankind climbs out of the box,
I wonder on this paradox,
The planets spread as though unwrapped.
Found as one traversed the universe,
It was the earth that was the map.
