I’ll stay in the shadows
accruing interest on accolades due
for quietly providing remedies
which combat worldly ails.
Those who seek praise may stumble upon
beneficial consequences of their actions,
but more often they aggravate sores,
hidden by their alacrity.
So it will continue into eternity;
my admonitory words will be forgotten
until the ages of dust which adorn them
solidify; proving my words adamant.
