I am pushing the boundaries of my intelligence,
To seek out new realms of my resourcefulness,
To create more avenues for lasting sustenance,
So that later on, when I sit and reminisce,
I will say that I was proud to have lived life like this.
To have been an agent of love, joy and even peace,
To be one who elicits desire, hope and even bliss,
I pray that this drive in me will be constant and never cease,
As I work to give my life this new found lease,
I pray that my good fortune would continue to increase.
