All Menís Failure But One Manís Success
Men do the least of labor to obtain the greatest of leisure,
One man relaxed in order to work on improving his self.
Men look upon themselves and have no need to know more,
One man gazed upon his surroundings to find what part of the whole he was.
Men accumulate resources so others may want to have,
One man chose to possess only his self, so he may find his wealth readily.
Men become less giving tribute to other men, so they may become greater,
One man valued others, no less, no more.
Men concern themselves only with their relations to other men,
One man was satisfied to speak to his self.
Men devour more than required so the burden of their flesh requires support,
One man carried his cross with no crutch.
Men lust for a sole so perfect yet untouchable by their outstretched hands,
One man needed only his heart and the soul contained within.
Men desire to have their name known to all other men,
One man chose to know the name of others so he may come to know his self.
This man's true given name is rarely spoken but often sung,
For only this is faithfully known, this man is not one of men.
