Some pray to be happy
Some pray to be rich
Others for the safety
Of comfort’s nowhere bridge.

I pray now for something else
Worthy of noble pride
I seek my gods to bless
My search for glory’s side.

Not for greatness, not anymore
But that what’s graced the other shore
Something to ignite my core,
Of magic, worth dying for
I guess I seek not the common gold
But something closer
To the philosopher’s stone
I guess that for which I strive
Is the fullest feeling of being alive.
