Completion is a most fulfilling thing,
Whether in physical endeavor or
In intellectual challenge. We sing
Praise to them that find the last exit door

To journey far or deep, wherever fate
Leads. To challenge the mind is what we seek,
To discover, to bolster, to deflate,
To plumb the painful depths, and then to speak

In metaphoric verse to move the soul
To places we’ve never been, even seen
In our wildest dreams. And not to console
An aching heart, but rather to careen

Through life taking the hardships as pleasure,
And writing words that turn them to treasure.
