I will be everything.
My very dreams
Reign over the world.

I will do everything.
No task too great,
All challengers cast aside.

I will know everything.
Intellectual power
No man can compare.

I will rule everything
My empire will rise,
Servants trembling at my feet.





I am nothing.
My lofty goals
Far out of reach.

I do nothing.
Every challenge
Fades into loss.

I know nothing.
False wisdom
Condemns me to ignorance.

I rule nothing.
The world spins beyond my control;
I remain just a part of the shrieking multitudes...




I can only hope to survive.
