It just did.
In that gooey stuff that was to pass for time,
There was a moment, and then There Was Life™.
It was the same moment the universe was made.
And because time really isn’t,
It was the same moment every mote was made;
And every energy ravaging star
That was or ever will be;
And there were great collidings,
Barely giving time for coalescing before the massive forms
Rent one another in blinding demonstrations of cosmic force.
But we were not made, for we did the making, and were,
The Life that we created.
Formless or formed, it is us.
