Though I Leave An Honest Legacy

As Atlas shrugs to tilt our little ball,

His muscle, like courage, strengthened by use,

We are taught that with the surest footing

One man can with one promise move the earth.

It is with revelation such that I,

Akin the silent mouth, confess no word

Of recognition for the soundless call

Which strikes in common the solitary man.

Since never was there a means of carriage

To transport what he in this life accrues,

And though I leave an honest legacy,

I begrudge the death for which I was born.
