Not for the fortune,
Nor for the fame.
Not for the crowd
to call out his name.

Rather, he strived
to reflect on
and reveal the greatness of who he was
— to himself;
with the breath he had
that day —

So that,
in ages to come
after he was done and long gone
and only a fading echo
of his simple story remained —
I, the future audience
might see
the awesomeness within me;
standing on a name ,
on shoulders,
and know —

I too,
am invited by Life
to express
my innate greatness from within,
without constrain.
