Idols are born from feasting in their glory;
It’s impossible to find gems underground.
You’re not ready to hear that person’s story,
Not yet…But in it, a lesson can be found;
Just like your hero at the top of their game,
There’s a row to hoe for a remembered name.
And once at the peak of an arduous climb,
Overcoming hurdles is truly sublime.
