The Shock of Discovery

How do I go against
everything I’ve learned?
Soft not hard
Receptive not reactive

How is this me?

How do I do it?

And now when I’m old
And thought I was settled
And accomplished
And done

But it’s come to naught
It’s all ashes

Know Thyself Socrates taught
And Jesus
And just about everyone else
Even relativism tries

But what when you know thyself
All of a sudden and clearly
In the bright light of day

And it makes everything in the past different
And the present
And the future
How do you cope with Knowing Thyself then?
And God where are you now?
