The Pursuit of Knowledge


Celebrity I have in airy regard,
And Lust I laugh to spurn,
And Arrogance is but a vice of Pride
That thwarts a virtue of Moderation.

And if I desire, the only aspiration
That moves my mind and spirit
Is, “May the virtue of high Mind be my possession
and my body be full of Light!””

As the days are nearing to the end of journey,
This is all that I beseech vehemently
In my time on the terrestrial sphere of Eternity
With Perseverance and Hope to attain eventually.
