Why are you surprised?

A two hundred pound Jack
flying a bus through the sky
A tiny woman 
driving a mammoth truck.

A simple frown destroying the day
A gentle kiss to launch
an emotional storm
or to start a fierce war.

A simple set of thoughts
able to describe relativity
A single invisible neutron
to destroy Nagasaki.

One little spark on a stick
to blow up a mountain
A single discouraging word
to destroy an entire career.

Used to be said
All good things are free in life
But then came taxes on water
On air and open sky.

Good things are still free
You just have to dig deeper
Those things invisible
Reside within you to share.

There is no charge for a loving smile
A generous hug
Or unplanned casual touch
Invisible, free and delightful.

Meek shall inherit the earth
Not a person who can't speak
Or will not speak
But those who may not speak.

They are tirelessly working 
To make it better
To fix all wrongs
But remain invisible.

They are  invisible emotions
That well up from inside
Without a promise of reward
even against your wishes.

But why are you surprised?
The power of creation 
Started with a Big Bang
Most likely from an invisible nothing.

Can it get any smaller?
