A Man

A MAN is not the slave of circumstance,
Or need not be, but builder and dictator;
He makes his own events, not time nor chance;
Their logic his: not creature, but creator.

A highly motivational poem. A man is not a puppet of destiny but a builder and dictator. He is not creature, but creator. Small but profound. Thanks.
