Keep your eyes on the ball, your mind on the goal.
Is the lesson then that life’s a working game?
Each player’s part forwards the greater whole
whether in supporting role or marked with fame.
But what of listeners to a distinct voice,
clamor of adventure, daring, sublime thrill?
Those who spurn the rules, create more choice,
demand no greater ally than pure will?
We take our turn upon the peak to fly,
turn vision to our guiding star.
Expressing what we mean by “I”
while discovering who we truly are.
