For this desire
You do inspire
Every page
Every phrase
With this new day
With this passage say
You built your pyre
You built it higher

Wisdom will come
Alone as one
Pull the rope
Focus the scope
With every line
With every letter
You forge a test
You forge this best

With heaven done
You will become
Every note
Of every quote
You edit this fire
Of human desire
Writing this tome
Your perfect epitome

As you reach higher
A new empire
Of little more
Of little for
What does remain
What brings you shame
As the fires burn
As the flames yearn
