nuclear fission

We are nuclear fusion
Energy finds its time to bind,
Between students of science
And the human mind.

Elements of dancing light,
Close enough to become one.
A single subatomic particle
Spewing energy like the sun.

Rising and setting,
Something new begins to grow
From our light and love
Inside a warm glow.

We are nuclear fission.
Elements split from the core.
Isotopes in the reactor,
One becomes home for more.

Like the power lines that line the streets,
And the lights inside of homes.
They give the gifts of sound and sight
And begin to warm our bones.

The energy that brought us together
Begins to pull us apart
Into the best pieces of ourselves, 
In the electricity of tiny hearts.
