    Since I am cognizant of who and what I am,
    I have no excuse not to aspire beyond the reach
    of commonality, the traditional and the accepted risk.
    It is my duty to introduce new gods as we kill the old gods
    while preparing to undermine the new gods we set to praise.

    Old gods die hard and drag true believers along
    the paths of knowledge, the treasure of discovery
    and finally, into the steep halls of learning and wisdom.
    Gods do not pass silently into distant memory or dusty history,
    as they adhere to every potential believer to avoid annihilation
    but in the end, the gods all die, slain by the new and sparkling
    sword of progress, self-awareness and innate intelligence.

    It is our duty

    absence of progress is stagnation, stagnation leads to moldy minds filled with cobwebs and fear of the unknown--this is my personal anthem--searching, looking, interrogating--trying to renew myself the only way I know how--Ra
