Awake

A whisper drew me out
As effective as a shout.
The time for dreams has passed
As I come awake at last.

You called out from afar
I’m not clear yet who you are.
Or how you’ve come, quite honestly,
You, who have awakened me.

As you offer a new viewpoint,
Which with the old, is out of joint,
I’ll need some clear perspectives
And must seek out new objectives.

Or at least rework some old ones
Not just sticking to my old guns.
Awake, awake!
For mercy’s sake.
