Big Bang

This is one laymans' confession
(I have this nagging obsession)
A huge mass of matter
Explodes in a scatter
Here is my 'ignorant' question...

From whence came this gigantic ball?
Just how did the whole thing befall?
What was there before that?
And before even that?
And so on and so forth,

Blank space, only vacuum you say?
Endless void? Flat nothing? Okay...
Is nothing just nothing,
Or ain't nothing something
And what made the nothing I pray?

    Hey Tim! I thought this looked familiar! Still great! My original comment (in limerick form) is below!

    It's all just a question of thought/ In how the cosmos was wrought/ It's half anti-matter/ In the mass of the scatter/ When you add it all up you get naught
