If one could be what one is not,
To have a heart like Sir Lancelot,
To ride and battle through life’s onslaughts
To harness the power of juggernauts,
To smile at danger and ask its name,
To carry no shield and feel no shame.
If one could capture all these traits,
To accept life in all its shapes,
To challenge only that which strikes,
To question no human rights,
To unravel that which hides,
To understand all the lies.
If one was honest, true of heart,
To exist together and not push apart,
To love what’s here, not wish for more,
To praise and not always deplore,
To live in hope without fear of rules
To use words as soothing tools!
