We have existed since the dawn of time,
Yet we're not older than a blink of an eye
We may be entities of creation,
or entities of destruction
Behold, however, and you shall see
We're nothing but dust
People used to think we were of some ethereal nature
It has been dismissed, in favour of something somewhat more mature
We can be everywhere,
We can stay nowhere
We can't, however, be torn apart
For which we have no part.
Who are we?
"Behold", "creation" and "destruction" all take their meanings from a very specific context
The second and third stanzas form an antithesis, representing "two sides of the same coin"
