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.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
