Crucial that is what you are to me,
Lawrence of Arabia,
Einstein and so many other inventors,
and writers and politicians,
and artists who have inspired me,
those talented individuals that have strode this world with their minds,
and with such dedication,
and their inventions,
and their intellectual capacity,
they were shining lights in the world,
and oh, how powerful was their incredible talent,
for in their fortitude and in their dedication,
what strengths they had in their creations,
and in their determination to change the world,
and in their determination to save life,
and there will forever be such admiration,
for how great the mind is,
that from out of nowhere creates an idea,
and that invents even the smallest thing that in some way benefits society,
and how great are the teachers of the world,
the teachers that inspire so many people to be themselves,
and what great power they have in their hands,
and in their minds to shape and better humanity,
and what dedication and fortitude they did need
they did need to fight on despite the lack of funding,
and despite the conditions of war and the black dog,
they drove on ever on with their ideas and ideals,
and in the history of humanity how great are they,
for they will live on in their achievements,
and they will live on in their ideas eternally.
