Was Aristotle your teacher?

Young Alexander, you must take your desires in your hands,
make the world your own, ordered, owned,
because you can you must, connected clauses
you and power will fulfill myriad causes

face your face only at the end of the story
means must take you there to holiest glory
believe in the God that lives in your chest
at the end of the book you'll have bested the best

make your way as you might in the land of the mighty
take what you will as you stick and stone lightly
all these crusades will be written and wrought
before any age where the land could be bought

sail on the sea to make it all known
in knowledge you'll find the courage to own 
repeating your self as the highest of all
answering fully your mentor's wise call.
