I want open eyes and a clear mind.
I want the fruits of labor to be as sweet as sworn.
I want it all to be worth doing.
I want the mountain to be a pebble in my shoe.

To shed the snakeskin of doubt and apprehension.
To evolve from primordial form.
From warm and self-generated light.
Pluck sun for fun.
