In some mind-boggling distant time,
In a cataclysmic event shrouded forever in mystery,
Perhaps, the present cycle of universe arose.
In the outskirts of Milky Way, a planet was born in an apoplectic turmoil,
Eons later, when the restless earth cooled,
The elemental chemicals synthesized in the building blocks of life,
Human consciousness arose in an incremental order, through the thread of evolution.
The impregnable blocks of obscurity screen off
The peephole of understanding of the origins of life,
Leaving the knowledge forever incomplete,
Our past haunts us in uncomprehending ways,
The mystery of life is inscrutable.
