outsiders, a creation myth

By wirrow

a little creation myth idea i had about outsiders


___ 


 


somewhere, there are shapes


being forged by angels in the night


shapes that once lit up the dark


brought unknown things to light.


 


but shapes require constant change


so that their light may shine,


and as the angels were unable 


to dream up new designs


 


the old familiar shapes


one by one began to fade.


with all but one lone circle 


left heavenly displayed,


 


the angels crafted new beings


inside this final sphere


to trace the paths and routes they'd take


for new shapes to appear.


 


but these insiders did not perform


as angels had predicted


although endowed with free will


to travel unrestricted


 


they dutifully walked the lines


that were set out before them


never altering their course


or seeking to explore them.


 


their experiment had failed


it seemed, but not yet too dismayed


the angels hatched a plan for


a new species to be made.


 


born outside the sphere


this time, a handful were designed


and placed inside to shake things up


as kings leading the blind!


 


taking insiders by hand,


their wonderment prevailed


the outsiders burst through the lines


and new paths were unveiled.


 


kaleidoscopic patterns formed


unchartered and unmapped


shower'd the angels with new light


as darkness came unwrapped.


 


the angels' venture a success,


and needing no more of this chore


they fled to newly lit up lands


and cosmos to explore.


 


but what of this lone sphere


now left alone in space,


and outsiders still longing 


to inspire shapes at pace?


 


the insiders began to tire


of conjuring new scenes


and settled back into the comfort


of their old routines.


 


but the sphere grew ever dimmer,


a straight and insulated world.


the insiders had forgotten


how new patterns were unfurled.


 


as time went by the outsiders


found they were cast aside


and thought of as insane beings


by those on the inside.


 


they roam now scattered and alone


but still intoxicated


with the urge to transform static structures,


just as they were fated.


 


if this should sound like you


my friend, know that you're not alone.


go forth and find other explorers


of the vast unknown,


 


and hurl yourselves as one


into this aquiescent sphere 


as shapes and fractals spiral out


new patterns will appear.
