Human spirit is like a fountain, ever towering like a mountain; It is a flame, so clear and bright, that dwarfs even the brightest light. It is a beacon flying high, rising brightly towards the sky; It is a flare, so chaste and pure, like the blaze of a rapture. It soars up high to the skyline seam to give up light in brightest beam; It dives down in the deepest sea like a cool wind, wild and free. It is a fighter, brave and strong, it does not dwell in fault and wrong; It finds its strength in smile and laugh even if the tides are rough. For human spirit is a wonder that tames even the wildest thunder; It is the flame of God Divine that burns whether in rain or shine. If you shall faint in test of fate, let your spirit guide your faith; For those who dare the sands of dune will thrive to sing their fabled tune.
