Self-Made Man MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   The very image of the self-made man,

I am the Phoenix, born again of fire,

Enduring since the mind of man began,

I'm always young, never do I retire.

My radiant flame will never expire,

And with the ashes of all knowledge past,

I strive to travel hither, always higher,

Reaching forever, flying high and fast.

The ideas of great men will always last,

And as these same men, which none shall surpass,

I build upon these ashes of the past,

I am the Phoenix, crowned feathers of brass.

Phoenix, bird of fire, symbol of my life,

Posterity's joy, Predecessor's strife.
