Burn the want out of every moment,
Live the life of every chorus line,
Run the race of countless ancient athletes,
In them, fortitude breeds counter decline.

Stream the smoke throughout every fire,
Glide beyond every deterrence,
Sew binding thoughts as reasons to aspire,
Years of struggle shed light on true brilliance.

Plant seeds of sacrificial actions,
Take the walk of dusty roads less known,
Course roads trodden by ancient Bedouins,
If one can be led to Solomon’s throne.

This journey leads around the world in twirls,
And in the depth of experience, Pearls.
