Real men expose themselves to the hardest of situations.
They are well aware of the more frequented paths, the easier choices, the less burdensome affairs but they choose otherwise,
They know that spiritual, mental and physical development are far worthier than comfort and lies,
And they throw themselves into the thick of the forest, the deep waters or the dry desert terrain,
They know, out on the other side, they will come out again,
They know that this is the only way of men.
They understand truth cannot be sought without the torture of blue flame fire,
Extinguishing of desires,
Seeking plains higher,
Until they have no desire,
And they arrive at the shire,
Of presence with the Sire.
