| I stood
on the threshold of time.
many had made this journey before.
Many had passed this way before,
many are making the same journey,
and history has had no room for them.
Then, how do I journey well?
Then how do I write my name
in the annals of history?
Then, I decided
to touch lives positively.
To live selflessly,
and live for all that is good.
To dedicate my existence to the service of mankind.
And to leave the rest for history to judge.
That is the way
I have decided to journey.
