the many-worlds theory 

there’s a theory

in quantum mechanics

an utterly complex

& difficult theory

to understand-

much less explain

without proper expertise

and divisive research.

put simply,

it states that

our universe,

our past,

our present

and our future

are a part of an

infinite number

of universes.

so many,

in fact

that every possible



and scenario

is happening,

has happened

and will happen.

I take comfort in this theory.

I bend my knees in gratitude

because in this possibility

there is another-

one, where you and I

have a chance,

a feasible chance

somewhere outside

the tangle

of this life

and the next.

I only hope 

they grasp the luck

we’ve been denied.

  1. Awesome! written poem.


    Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted as scientific fact even though they’re mutually exclusive. Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two.

    1. Ah! I’m familiar! I love quantum mechanics and I’ve been trying to incorporate the theories into my poetry.. it’s just difficult to simplify the complexity behind them. I need more research, etc. Thank you!
