Why A World - Poem by Shalom Freedman


Why a world
So vast so violent so dark so empty
Why all this distance
With so little life?

Why we
In this narrow space of time
On this frail membrane of earth and air?

Why so much else?

And we
We alone
Dreaming of You
Praying to You
Loving You
Fearing You
Not really knowing You.

Why and why again
In this vast seemingly indifferent universe
Are we here?
