Love the work you do, wearing the best shoes you can afford
Seek to know bees do sting and ghosts will haunt,
While masters rarely surround themselves with illusions
For everyone is an mix of both vision and fact.
Know labor is a value and learning a value of delight
Bridge yourself with loyal strength and passion,
Watch time’s breadth and length of space among the stars
Understanding life and death both count equally.
Play the music you dearly love high upon your straddle
And replay your wisdom as you take it to the grave.
Must you still forfeit excitement? To what end?
Simply gaze upon the fabric of time that keeps you alive.
