Each To a Portion of the Shine

Mortal Man, I speak to thee:
Why should you drown your mind
In shallow puddles of defeat?
Why should you quake at the heights
Of success?
Why should your vision be clouded
By the dark clouds of pessimism?

I have seen soaring dreams nose-dive
By ten-pence fear hatched in doubtful minds
I have also seen humble men
Who couldn’t add 2 to 2
Scale up the heights
All because they stared down the sun.

So, carry on, mortal man
Keep the fire burning, keep the spirit going
If you have to rest, rest
But the spring of your feet should never relent
Re-ignite the spark, set ablaze your element
Kick it up, mortal man, do your thing

Let the grasses whisper your greatness
Let the hills echo your worth
Let the dust gather up
You are echo, reverberate.
