An Atom Is Small

An atom is small with a minuscule core,
and electrons in orbit, electrons galore!
But how it builds mountains, I'm not really sure...
See, only a fraction is matter,
and the rest, I would guess, doesn't matter.

Me, I am vast with a dream at my core,
and ideas in orbit, ideas galore!
I think I am real but I'm not really sure...
See, only a fraction is matter,
and the rest, I would guess, is what matters.

this is so delightful. I love the play on "matters" in both parts! Hope I can come up with a goodie.
