Richard Allen Beevor
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.
