AS I lay with my head in your lap, Camerado,

The confession I made I resume--what I said to you in the open air I

resume:

I know I am restless, and make others so;

I know my words are weapons, full of danger, full of death;

(Indeed I am myself the real soldier;

It is not he, there, with his bayonet, and not the red-striped

artilleryman;)

For I confront peace, security, and all the settled laws, to unsettle

them;

I am more resolute because all have denied me, than I could ever have

been had all accepted me;

I heed not, and have never heeded, either experience, cautions,

majorities, nor ridicule;

And the threat of what is call'd hell is little or nothing to me;10

And the lure of what is call'd heaven is little or nothing to me;

...Dear camerado! I confess I have urged you onward with me, and

still urge you, without the least idea what is our destination,

Or whether we shall be victorious, or utterly quell'd and defeated.

.: :.

This is the poem in which Whitman reveals his true inurement not only to the horrors of war but the horrors of silence. But who is camerado? Modern day audiences may never know the truth. Modern scholars agree, this poem is 100% about the Civil War of North America.
