My son Jordan Blair has just posted the following on his Facebook.
Destined to Choose:
Who’s to say which path we take
When fortune gives us choice?
Which the better to forsake
And give the other voice?
Out among the countless stars
Is there our story made?
Or forged below with trials and scars
And unseen hardship borne and paid?
This, the burden of a man
From savage beast, he stands apart
The right to choose at his command
The peril, yet, a broken heart.
