Understand.

September 27, 2011

This is a poem I just wrote. Where it came from? I have no idea. I wrote the first line (which is not really a part of the poem itself), with only the intention of storing it in my files for the possibility of later use. Then I found myself writing the rest.

“I no longer wish to try and understand God. Instead, I will simply enjoy Him.”

A long walk I found.

There were trees with branches and at times leaves.

There were twigs and at times logs.

There were birds who at times chirped.

And at times I stopped and asked Why?

And at times I stopped and asked How?

A long path I wound.

There was sun and at times stars.

There was ice and at times flakes.

There was laughter and at times howls.

And at times I stopped and asked What?

And at times I stopped and said Speak!

And at times no one spoke.

A fast car I found.

There was wind and at times blur.

There were lines and at times brick.

There were birds who at times hid.

And at times I stopped and asked Why?

And at times I stopped and said Speak!

And at times no one spoke.

And so I stopped.

And so I simply enjoyed.
