I Am II


Since I am nothing of myself, I am you,
I become you and become one,
I become someone by you, through you,
In my dreamless sleep I am still nobody.

So I sleep often, no pressure to be,
And when I dream, I am an object,
With a dreamt body and a dreamt conscience,
But no consciousness, I simply am.

I create myself through you but for you,
The nothing, the nobody deserves no grave,
And I will not be going home, no rest,
Just be, just anybody else but me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
