With near-death experiences baby boy began to see the light
Throughout his youth of suffering from torture and fright.
His parents crushed his spirit; so he was destined to fail.
Popular presumptions affirmed he would spend many years in jail.

Floggings, homelessness, hunger, school failure and slavery
Earned him misunderstanding about his innocence, patience and bravery.
A horror-filled first-quarter-century he never deserved,
Whence a great paradox he became who just quietly observed.

W. H. Auden reminded a world without mirth
In his poem, "September 1, 1939," the year of baby boy's birth:
"I and the public know what all school children learn,
Those to whom evil is done do evil in return."

The shell of to whom evil was done cracked from deepest pain.
By lacking hate, wisdom and understanding became his gain.
Prescience and spiritual connections are part of his blessedness
That helped guide him to overcome brutal reality and learned helplessness.

Always sharing his trauma-derived knowledge with a compassionate spirit,
Once with a group-thinker who kept rubbing his neck, not wanting to hear it,
About his recent recovery from a very slow common-chemicals death.
"You scare me!" the frightened one retorted and not under his breath.

Emotions and false-belief entrapments can cause people to suffer.
Some will not grasp the insight that world champion survivors can offer.
So do you know why this one would not kill or did not die?
A world traveler, spiritual-care volunteer, inspirational speaker became I.
