I was struck by lightning
Today, I feel weak, light,
Incorrect, was laughing, eating,
Drinking, it all in, I wasn't.
I wonder why I'm wasting
My time, is now and always, not
Forever, isn't life, isn't soul,
Isn't air, and water and food,
Precious? are the little ones,
So clean, so soft, so
smooth, were the stones David used,
To slay, to defeat, to
Beat Goliath, was my intention,
But I now realize, am aware,
Understand, the air, the water,
The sky, supplied the lightning that struck me.
