Glory breeds glory
Exalted men are beacons
High upon the pedestals of history
Trailblazers true and fair
Battled the blazes of judgement and despair
To create a more progressive air
To err on caution is to submit to fear
They do not know how man can fly
It's pride, to conquer the summit of impossiblity
It's determination, to never relent against the beating waves
It's endurance, to withstand all criticism
To reach the pinacle of achievement for humainity
Is to embrace absurdity
How many of you were scorned into submission?
Even I am guilty
"That is impossible, it can't be done."
Oh, but I answer to you, it has been done.
To think different
Who will willingly venture into death's doorstep?
Perhaps with open arms?
Never will one who cowers join the ranks of men in Valhalla
They cast thier doubts onto the abusrdity
The very absurdity that built our world
One day, as history repeats
All will have a choice at some point
Rise, recognizing the risks
Or fall into the fear of pain
Countless times that very decision appears
You may not battle demons
But fighting anything is always still a fight
The explorers who conquered Everest
A symbol of the impossible
The warriors who never forgot thier dreams
of equal rights and the desire for better
From protests to rebellions
Almighty nature, the societal fabric of the world
Is no match for a stubborn man or woman
Inspiration can be found easily
Delve into the victories of yesterday
Even as basic as you choosing to survive
Even that requires the strongest of wills
Ceasar took his leap with the crossing of the Rubicon
Confidence lead his armies; worthy men swore,
They swore alleigance to Ceasar
Joan of Arc prioritized all of France
Over all of what she grew up for
People doubted her
Like they will you
Do you see yourself?
Man or woman or anyone, it matters not
We're capable of anything.
If Edison could light the torch for the birth of the world
As we know it
Then you, you beautiful human
You can achieve anything
Just look to the stars and remember
Who else looked to those very same stars
For their guidance.
That is what inspires me.
