There are men who travel far
To lands where none have been,
There are men who live for war,
And men who worship sin.
There are men who conquer nations,
There are men who pray;
And there are men who seek salvation
— Many men are they.
There are men who travel space,
Or fathom foreign seas,
And there are men who claim their place
In books of history…
There are woman, fare of face
To make the mountains sigh;
Who wrap the universe in grace
And make their lovers cry;
There are poets, painters, kings,
There are men of fame…
There are men who do great things,
And men of noble name.
And many are the men who write
Of tales and tragedies;
And any are the men who fight
Or sail the astral seas …
And there are men who brandish knives
So many men are these!
But few, who dedicate their lives,
To setting people free.
