Life In The Light 


To confess
Myself to myself: –
Say to those living with me here
That I am different from them: –
Say that I am
Just what I have been
For eternities
And bear witness from the Eternal
To man’s eternity, –
I was only able to do 
When I under compulsion
Had overcome within myself
The opposition of the earthly.

After I had wrestled
Many hard years with myself,
I finally succeeded
In overcoming;
And I had to succeed,
If I were to complete my work,
Before time succeeded
In ending my earthly existence.
