With new expectation I am apprehensive and bold; an offspring of my progenitors, a man of my assertion, Afraid of disappointment, yet daring on my excursion, An inconceivable excursion that closes at death, For death chooses if my guarantee is ensured, Waking to consider it to be as a clear page, I will indiscriminately discover my approach to eternality,

Not for magnificence, not for honor, Not for acclaim, nor for notoriety, Merely for a guarantee to the past, and an obligation to future, With trust, I stroll toward the obscure, unafraid of the result of my movements, With aims of contributing a stanza, and all the more significantly, getting myself , inside my own words...
