Never perish

Never die

What am I?

 

Mortal soul

Immortal Legend

I fight to think

Not to be remembered

 

But dare you say that i am more?

More than a man

but then how less

than a god?

 

A god that aspires 

to be a man

rather than a man that aspires to be 

a god

 

But then

What is a god

but an immortal man?

and what is an immortal man

but a man

aspired to in legend?

 

To be wise

To be powerful

To be everknowing

 

But is it worth it

to know all

if you learn nothing?

 

For the man

who claims to know all

knows nothing

 

And in doing so

forgetting life's

most important

lesson

 

For i know 

Not all

But I know

Not nothing
