Great Men vs. great men

Over ten years from now,
Only some of today’s Great Men of Capital
Will be remembered.

Over one hundred years from now, 
Only a few of today’s Great Men of Power
Will be lionized.

Over one thousand years from now,
Only a smattering of today’s Great Men of Philosophy
Will be sung of.

Over ten thousand years from now,
Even their impact
Will be eclipsed

By the multiple of great men
Who through their small examples
Taught their children

To plant blossoms
In the gardens
Of their souls.

Great Men
Will be eclipsed
By great men.
