Being a holy warrior is my pride
Yet will I never truly be a knight
For they say bad is my eyesight
Though I know that is not right

It's just how I am meant to be
That half this earth I cannot see
But something really makes me happy
That an imaginary partner complements me

I'm white, and I despise them who are black
But that does not make me a racist
And I can run very fast, and back
And those things make me such a beast

Coincidentally, my boss lives next door
He's very lazy, yet amazingly prudent
His wife, I know, is a goddess of war
Well, I often helped her as a student

Travelling is my favorite hobby
To Spain five times, to Italy four
In France everyone worships me
For among the black people I shall roar

In a blink of an eye
This poem is a mess
But can you tell me who am I
And also my specific address?

It is the

White bishop in chess at f1

Being a holy warrior is my pride

Bishop is a man of religion

For they say bad is my eyesight
Though I know that is not right

It's just how I am meant to be
That half this earth I cannot see

It can only move on white squares of the chess board

But something really makes me happy
That an imaginary partner complements me

I guess it is referring to the other bishop

I'm white, and I despise them who are black
But that does not make me a racist

The white bishop is trying to capture black pieces

And I can run very fast, and back
And those things make me such a beast

It can move as far diagonally as it wants

Coincidentally, my boss lives next door
He's very lazy, yet amazingly prudent

The king is in the next square e1 and moves only one square at a time

His wife, I know, is a goddess of war
Well, I often helped her as a student

The queen is of course the most powerful of the chess pieces. The "student" part is referring to the Scholar's mate with the queen and bishop.

Travelling is my favorite hobby
To Spain five times, to Italy four
In France everyone worships me
For among the black people I shall roar

The only thing I can think of for the fifth stanza are chess openings:
In Spanish Game the bishop moves to b5
In Italian game it moves to c4
In French game only the pawns move

    $\begingroup$ Correct answer! However, can you explain the fifth stanza? And the term 'help her as a student'? $\endgroup$ – William Nathanael Jul 27 '17 at 9:00
  • $\begingroup$ I added my guess for the 5th stanza but haven't figured out the student part. $\endgroup$ – user39583 Jul 27 '17 at 9:41
  • $\begingroup$ "I can run very fast" probably refers to the German name for the piece. $\endgroup$ – Henning Makholm Jul 27 '17 at 11:02
  • $\begingroup$ All but one clue solved! "Very fast" just refers to the fact that it moves much faster than the knight. The last part, that it roars in France, is that it is the star attacking piece in the Greek Gift Sacrifice. $\endgroup$ – William Nathanael Jul 27 '17 at 14:48

It's the

Sun

I guess, but yet I am not really sure about it.

Explanation:

Being a holy warrior is my pride, Yet will I never truly be a knight

Many religions symbolize the Sun as the God, so holy warrior seems like that and then 'knight' is similar to night, so, for Sun there is no night.

It's just how I am meant to be That half this earth I cannot see

Nothing much to explain here.

But something really makes me happy That an imaginary partner complements me

The moon has none of it's own light, it just reflects the Sun's light to us that we say as moonlight. So, the moon is basically complimenting the sun's power of light.

I'm white, and I despise them who are black But that does not make me a racist And I can run very fast, and back And those things make me such a beast

Sunlight is white in color and it's speed is around 200 km/s.. and size is enormous, so it really is a beast.

Coincidentally, my boss lives next door He's very lazy, yet amazingly prudent His wife, I know, is a goddess of war Well, I often helped her as a student

I don't know alot about Greek and Egyptian Gods, so can't explain this one.

We can relate black people to Africa, and it's known to everyone how hot the African deserts are.
