Radha

When it comes
You should know…
They warned us.

Long before the scientists found evidence
Or the leaders wrung their hands
We were told.

The old people told us.

They told us of how the universe was created
How out of nothingness came

Water
Fire
Soil
Growth
And Us.

They told us of how we would grow
Advance
Build
Take over

Until there was no room
Until we forgot
Where we came from
That nothingness

They told us of how someone would return
To correct the balance

Is it you?
Is it you, little one?

If it’s not you, or her, or him
Then she will do it for us
Nature will return us to the nothingness

From which we came
And from which everything will come

Again
And again
And again

(words by S. Shakthidharan)
