    While other animals will manifest
    The essence of their being before long,
    What humans may become cannot be guessed;
    Presuppositions generally prove wrong.

    Though we are born with tendencies and traits,
    Proclivities and aptitudes innate,
    We are not bound toward any certain fates,
    Each one discovering his or her estate.

    Who we become, we slowly realize,
    Deciding and discovering as we go;
    Uniquely we determine and devise
    What character our personage will show.

         While other creatures are by nature bound,
         We humans are discovered, made, and found.
