The greatest gift comes not alone
for it is surely a two-edged sword.
It is generously given to all at birth
from lowly pauper to highest lord.
Great thought is owed to understand
the best use of this incredible prize,
Yet few understand the reach and power
the receipt of this reward implies.
To put this gift to use oft proves
that no man solitary stands;
Each action has a reaction
that reverberates and expands.
Yet the Creator believes us worthy
to take our birthright and fulfill
The destiny we have chosen
exercising His golden gift of free will.
