Treasure Island

A Man, Human Being


I am a man, human being, rational am I
Not beast not animal not criminal not cruel
I am light I am in light I am enlightened.

I can distinguish real from unreal
Virtue from sin, duty from forbidden actions
I am my own nation, I am Your son.

You have taught me what ought to be done
I know from You what ought not to be done
I am Your son, I do not know how to handle gun.

When I want to know I can know
O my dear, I am Yours for ever
You are here with me for a cause, better.

Let the world be in pleasure, O my dear
It is Your world, I am its part and parcel
I am ever ready to go if You call.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice,
