The First Line Came From Somewhere Else - Poem by Shalom Freedman

The first line came from somewhere else-
The second came from the first
The rest came from the beginning
The whole poem would never have been
Without the first line,
That came from somewhere else-

I elaborated on the first line,
But I did not write the whole poem-

The poem was given to me by the first line-

And Who gave that to me?
Who gives us everything we are,
Even when we do not understand how or why?
