This poem was inspired by the writer James Rollins and the physicist Brian Greene

I have been reading about quantum entanglement, multuniverse and the physics theory that we are all mathematical holograms, its far beyond my limited comprehension, and yet I find the science fascinating. Based upon this, I wrote a poem that creates the most positive outcome of such terrible circumstances, and I can only hope in some way this theory will prove to be true.

Although I used science to tell the story, the real story is about the children, is so sad that anyone one has to suffer such terrible diseases, and my hats off to all the people that help and support these children and their families in their time of need. I can only hope, that in some way, there is some truth to my wishful thinking.

 

Emily of three years Leukemia eating her soul Her bald head, made her smile wider Please mummy do not cry I will hug you even after I die Tommy of five years Bone cancer eating his limbs Unable to walk, this beautiful mind Absorbed any book like it was fine wine He kissed his Daddy, and said all will be fine Lena a sweet young lady of seven Preparing her bed, for her voyage to heaven Her little liver refused to function Her spirit however could not be shrunken She smiled beyond her years, I love you mummy daddy Jacob of six, suffered from irony Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease was to be his downfall His hockey days were all but over His favorite stick he gave to little brother He said I love you, so don’t you too suffer Raquel was all of four and one half years old Menkes Disease was very soon to take hold Her sad blue eyes expressed her fate She knew the lord was waiting, staying up late Her tears were for all those she was leaving behind Jimmy was a young lad of only eight With burns all over his body, death his only fate His family hovered over his last moments here As a plentitude of love gazed up to mum His life fluttered away, he knew he was done Emily, Tommy, Lena, Jacob, Raquel and Jimmy All suffered and taken before their time All of them far wiser than their childhood years All of them sad for all their families tears The heavens of the universe, seem so fickle and unkind Why, why why, as my heart comprehends not at all this time The camp of dead children, killed me as well Yet they were survivors and filled with eternal love Why why why, as I can only cry Quantum entanglement Inside the human conscientiousness Schroeder’s cat, has been freed at last Multi universe, exposing heads and tails It’s the last ecstatic day of the Olympics The spectators are in awe Anticipation is hanging in the air As the best, most fit, most disciplined Of young men and woman are set to compete.... The finest of human specimens in both body and mind The starter raises his pistol The Big Bang The race of life is on The families of the triumphant winners jump for joy Mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters Clapping and cheering, years of dedication Are seen on the smiles of these young ones On to the podium does the team step They stare out proud and filled with joy Gold medals placed over their shoulders one by one Emily, Tommy, Lena, Jacob, Raquel and Jimmy They have won! Somehow, deep within, they know, they have won

Yes, even I do not grasp it all, I used the science merely as a way to tell the story, but yes there theories about the existence of more than one universe existing at the same time. I just wanted to hope that out of something so sad, there is something good that may exist from it, somehow! Thank you so much for such nice comments, I am really touched by all the lovely feedback.

It was hard to read through all the sadness All those little angels gone before their time... I guess the answer lies in the heavens or in heaven itself...

Well, dear poet, I must admit I know nothing about quantum entanglement and the physics theory about mathematical holograms. I have heard of the idea about parallel universe and frankly, I cannot follow. I'm sure though, that you have written here such an awesome beautiful and sad story. The way you have presented it shows your sensitive side, it grabbed at my heart , children being a subject anyone can relate to and I can hope that it's true. I know it is, in their life eternal. A 7. Hugs!
