Always hold fast to your inner strength and do what you know is right no matter the challenges ahead of you.
On the shore of Genius’s great wonder
That time cannot define—
On the sound-waves of cosmic thunder
Rumbling; ferment the holy wine,
And drink the Wisdom. Love and thought
Together know the place:
Unfold the beauty of all you’ve sought
Behind your heart and face.
On the edge of Majestic Emotion
Passing before thine eyes
On the edge of soundless devotion
Tumbling: sweet liquid to baptize
Chafed illusions—black and blue;
No martyr will I be:
What is this blessing in the dew
The moon left you and me?
