Yeshu (1)

Michael Peach

Whatever he, personally,
May have considered himself
To be 
(For instance the prophet
That must pave the way for Apocalypse),
Like all the greatest human beings,
He became in time a reflection
Of other people’s truth.

Yet, once understood,
This fact is by no means
For inherent in his so-called biography
Is the entire psychic make-up,
And thus eternal potential,
Of the human race.
