Treasure Island

Who Am I


Who am I? But a man?
Or something greater?

Who am I? But a villain?
Right now or later?

Who am I? But a person?
Troubled by thinking?

Who am I? But a loner?
Searching and seeking?

Who am I? But a warrior?
Fighting hard in this world?

Who am I? But a lover?
Deep in love with a girl?

Who am I? But a child?
Lost deep in his pain?

Who am I? But a victim?
And God be my cane?

Who am I? But a slave?
For my faults and my shame?

Who am I? But a beast?
Which I struggle to tame?

Who am I? But a prayer?
And emotions be my key?

Who am I? But a hoper?
Hoping me God can see?

Who am I? But a wisher!
Wishing good upon me.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
