God Among Men

God Among Men

A Poem by D Alan Johnstone

I am a God 

among men.

A specimen 

of unmatched


At the gym

every day,

I am a King 

of personal


Every curve 

every line



So watch 

me flex 

while you 

break my 

nose with 

your fist.

Look at 

the girth

of my 


hanging at

my side

while you 


my eyes.

Gaze at 

the rigid 


of my chest

lying on 

the ground 

before you

in fetal 


Check out 

my 6 pack 



as you 

shatter my 

ribs with 



In a heap,



I am a God

among men.

Look Upon Me

I concur that this writing comes from a place where a man is both real and also a version of his best self. He fulfills his need to be strong and have the appearance of strength and yet displays with complete vulnerability the insecurity of submitting to another's display of strength and dominance. I too can relate to being a former nerd who came into my own a little later in life.

....of epic profoundness. Well executed and a pleasure to read and relate.
Even Gods amongst men can fall and fail, albeit with much, much more depth.
Personally, I really enjoyed this. Thankyou for sharing it.
