If I Could Only Hear a Who


If I could only hear a Who

I’d finally know the answers.

But, we never truly can get it back.


My identity is a Whorton but I’d like to be a Horton,

I’d like to be brave and courageous,

To know what I’m supposed to do.

The kind of brave that carries a speck of dust.

The kind of brave that just trusts.


But, here I am waiting in confusion

Listening for a Who to tell me what to do.
