Birthright

[May 18, 1965]
Birthright

He stands
surveying light--
darkness, too,
breathing deeply,
overwhelmed
with awe.

Resolutely he strides out
to reap those fields prepared
beyond which expanse
and glory stretch,
shouting him on.

Deliberately he strikes
without answers!
Defiantly expecting
to be thrust down
he steps into unknown chambers.

There are those, who,
excited, too,
adventure on much smaller worlds.
Let them go,
their bliss is payment,
Their gaze is set.

They know not
that such a sight--
such Light,
is independent
of their eyes!
