    As a young man

    As a young man,
    I seek the truth;
    I seek for something to strive for,
    and something to cleave to.

    As a young man,
    I seek for what is right;
    I seek to live after the laws of righteousness,
    and spiritual insight.

    As a young man,
    I seek to behold my destiny;
    I seek to fulfill my quest, my journey,
    and all my Creator invested in me.

    As a young man,
    I will not boast of my self;
    for I fear God,
    whom I treasure with every breath.

    As jesus said "If I glorify myself, then my glory is in vain." I like how you seek the deeper things.

    All men (and women) should aspire to this poem.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
