This poem is very thought provoking. The middle portion reminds me of 1 Kings 19:11-12 “…a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”
I Just Woke Up
I awoke, a traveler,
I do not know where I came from,
Or where I am bound,
Or if I am going anywhere at all.
Many have traveled before me,
So I am told.
Many will most likely come after me,
Most of those traveling with me
Do not know me,
Do not want to know me,
And would hate me if they did know me.
But there are those that call me friend,
They seem to care about me,
But some have left.
Some are even family,
And they seem to care also,
But I actually only have their word for it,
I just do not remember.
I hear about a lot of philosophies,
Lots of opinions,
Lots of directions,
About things that I know nothing about for sure,
And that seem to be of little consequence.
I usually keep that to myself,
