As I Truly Am

I have been plagued by a vision
A vision of man
Shoulder broad
a man with fire in his eyes
and power and adventure
and gentle violence
he has my name
he has my face
he is not me
I have tears in my eyes
and reluctant a
heart

I speak to my soul

Like David why so down cast

It responds
I am
blind.

What would bring joy?

To remove that man that vision
that falsehood
and to see
as
I
truly
am
