Leo Rockas' Touch Three Decades Plus

I've seen enough of wealth to know
Its energy can go for show
That leaves the soul quite hollow.

Socrates gave us wise advice,
Its cost to him his earthly life,
That cared infinitely more for the integrity of the quest
Than the immortality he gained in the minds of many.

Soc says we have a compass for the strife
Inclusive of the fact we can not deify the wife
Or some lesser God as we wage the noble struggle
To know who we truly are
And then be true.
