The Spartan Manifesto
Scott Westerman – April 2017

My purpose is service to others
I live for the thrill of the fight
Challenges fade
Reputations are made
In the heat of the stormiest night

Who I am is revealed on the bad days
In the midst of the pressure and pain
I grow when I fail
Become strong in travail
I find peace when I dance in the rain

I believe that I’m destined for greatness
To alleviate suffering
Disintegrate hate
It’s not about me
And the future I see
Is where opportunity waits

For heroes who carry the burden
For warriors defending the weak
Those who persist
Where others resist
Shall find every treasure they seek

And what is the ultimate victory?
What is our greatest desire?
Spartan esteem
Dares others to dream
And to follow our footsteps inspired
