poetry of Pope John Paul II

what do you guys think about this one?

Actor

So many grew round me, through me,
from my self, as it were.
I became a channel, unleashing a force
called man.
Did not the others crowding in, distort
the man that I am?
Being each of them, always imperfect,
myself to myself too near,
he who survives in me, can he ever
look at himself without fear?
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
