The Egoist - Poem by Leani Auxilio

Made some time ago after reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, first year high school.

You, who love your life
And the Spirit of Man,
You, whose trust was defiled
By the Irrational and the Damned:
Don't give up,
Break their chains,
Refuse their offered fate of pain.

You with the eyes
Glimmering with pride,
You who take it all in confident stride:
Never let Darkness
Take full reign of Light;
The world is full of evils,
Yes, Present and Past;
Don't give in to them,
They never last.

You with the lips curled into a smile
Decisively so,
You who are aware
Of more than what anyone knows:
Please, don't waver in your resolve to fight
For Freedom
For Truth
For Justice
For everything else that's right.

You are not alone,
There are more of us than you think;
And although bodily we are not together
Our Hearts and Minds,
Our Ideals
Are all in a chain, strongly linked.
