I wear not this halo ‘round my neck
    for the admiration of my mother
    To confirm the goodness of a life held in measure
    prosperity through parity
Nay, To the defiance of death


I wear not this halo ‘round my neck
    for the engagement of my peers
    To model the excellence of uncompromised precision
    flourishing with fidelity
Nay, To the disregard of defect


I wear not this halo ‘round my neck
    for the edification of my descendants
    To shine the beacon of a mind steadfast to purpose
    securing by stability
Nay, to the dance of diversion
