My Desire --Reverse

I search truly for love that is sincere,
Real passion that is gained without pain,
reject I slavery with poverty intermingling,
Perfect is achievement without bitterness,
Greatness without sacrifice is null and void,
For lust I,after success and wisdom,
Making one to easily attain fame and power,
In order to free those in poverty,
I am ready now to work harder in accomplishing this 
bestowed destiny which I must fulfill.

    I have read this poem both ways......and it inspires us in a wonderful two-fold way.....up or down it is such an wonderful example to uphold. Beauty while reading forward or backwards....!
