About what it means to not just be a man but a good man

I

I wonder how am I to know the things I need to know

The ways of men such as I

Am I to be strong of body or of mind?

Which is better or which is right

Might of body over that of mind

I lay in wait for that flash of thought

The moment that comes to all who seek it

II

The leaders born of spirit and mind

The lights that show the way

Of how to be a man

III

The worthy ones

Who wield wisdom like a sword

A sword of stars gilded out of spirit

The spirit of man

IV

We mortals who hold the keys to life’s questions

The questions held by one and all

That soulful truth that carries us forth

V

The fire of spirit that belongs to man

That truth of spirit that burns from within

That forgotten light, that light our way

The ways of the wayward

That calls itself man
