Here's something I threw together when I was 19; a little philosophical conjecture about the way I saw things back then.
The man up high
is too high to care what is below.
The man down low
is too low to care about anything.
The man on the side
is out of reach.
The man down under
The man up above
is too insulted to pay attention.
The common man
believes what he's told is truth.
The exceptional man
believes what he knows is truth.
The ignorant man
takes the truth of others and makes it his own.
The smart man
learns his own truth.
The self-righteous man
understands what life is supposed to be for him.
The atheistic man
won't accept anything but himself.
The imaginative man
can think of how things should, would, or could be.
The adventurous man
goes out and makes those things reality.
Of all men...
