Cogito, Ergo Sum

I am what I am

Not a mouse

Not a god

Things I can never be


Finding fallacy

In the vivid dream

That I sleep with

For what I know as eternity


I am not but a stain

On all that I know

Everything I struggle for

Fades regardless


Dust is not

But the sum of our efforts

The scars and stains on my skin

Offer no immortality


I offer to you

The best burden I can bear

My greatest deeds

Give witness to my deepest thoughts


This effervescent search for glory

That I seek in this life and the next

Hold only the value others give

When we decide my fate
