My Kingdom

I do not ask for any crown,
But that which all may win;
Nor try to conquer any world
Except the world within.
Be Thou my guide until I find,
Led by a tender hand,
The happy kingdom in myself,
And dare to take command.

This poem is a selection of a poem called "My Kingdom".

James Allen was a little-known philosophical writer and poet. He is best recognized for his book, As a Man Thinketh. Allen wrote about complex subjects such as faith, destiny, love, patience, and religion but had the unique ability of explaining these subjects clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. He often wrote about cause and effect, sowing and reaping, as well as overcoming sadness, sorrow, and grief. For more information on the life of James Allen, click here.
