A man must be his own first,

A product of his own sweat and blood

His will must be his own as well

As is his thirst,

For how else would you make sense

Of an Idea living in flesh,

Or to an alien explain

What is so inalienable and humane,

But of a man’s own brows sweat,

And of his own blood flesh,

The only things entitled to him,

To be embraced by his own will

And nothing else?

To surrender his power to himself

And be his own master and slave,

To never nobody but himself blame,

To make his morals out of his pain,

And If not like this then how else

  Would you define a man,

And not fail to define a slave?
