The Undefined

There's something I felt,
Silent and warm within.
A feeling so divine, yet undefined.
My simple mind, fathom, it couldn't.
Blowing, ruffling my nerves, it kept.
Scary it was, for what it wasn't.
Beyond the grips, could I know,
Why me, it was?
Chose I, to ask not.
I do not know why.
Skimmed through the unknown,
Undefined realms again.
Futile it was, to know,
Happy and content though.

happy and content in not asking what the undefinite divinity was? there are so many poles in the poem potentially clashing with each other: silence/ruffle; divine/scary; beyond grip/skim; why/chose not to; skim/unknown; futile/content. it is a tough task to balance the weights on each sides so as not to slip away. the poem in its unassuming innocence accomplishes it quite easily. kudos :)
