When we reserve our pent up energy,
Like a coiled spring's release waiting.
How may acts provide spontaneity
Of cause, if freedom's not awakening ?
Then, purpose trumps the lethargic malaise
Controlling action, spiriting motion.
Directed energy moves in strange ways :
Creates leaders, stirs masses into action.
And then, the World has a chance to endure
Shiftless rouge dictators, "hope's eternal".
Through education the path is secure ;
No knowledge is the hidden criminal.
The burden falls on each person's shoulders
To maximize minds, be informed soldiers.
