Although there are many a wall I hit
By research, writing, editing and more,
‘Tis for you, dear reader, I do attempt
This noble art that, to my very core,
I do only to keep you really true.
This trade of words to truth and fact behold
Although hardship does always pass on through
To a better world we seek to unfold.
And more with this trade of truthful writer
Do principally hold the same as I,
That the spread of knowledge is the lighter
Of a flame much too strong to go awry.
And if the strife is too much to bear through,
All of the heartache was worth it for you.
