Treasure Island

Richard Allen Beevor

(23 March 1949 / London)

I Am Born


I am born of a different race my Father did not sire,
I am come from hidden land on a plane much higher,
I am God of all the world, held within my brain,
I am chosen by Lords of light to play the part of passive gain.

I am changed from other men whose needs become much greater,
I am possessed of a mind that holds all fears till later,
I am lost in this wilderness of confusion by desire,
I am alone the Superman all would wish to acquire.

I am man that feels no need to relieve bodily frustration,
I am one, to be alone that is my elation,
I am on the path to heaven after many years of learning,
I am enmeshed in the woven net of spiritual man's yearning.

I am found in the morning light, cold as winter snow,
I am lost to lady love but she will never know,
I am honest with my feelings though they may be few,
I am decided in my task yet I may never see it through.

I am united with the light of God's eternal fire,
I am reaching to the truth that reveals the unknown liar,
I am drowning in this sea of constant material change,
I am calling to my Lord for an end to this grasping age.

I am near the end of these words about me,
I am hoping from these lines all can come to see,
I am apart from the rest although I stand no higher,
I am born of a different race my Father did not sire.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
