Lifes full of choices its what you do who makes your who you are.

A son, A father
on different paths
The father
a life at sea
The son
fighting the front lines
a sea faring man
the lead hearted son
broken apart at birth
rejoined by death
souls walking
the valley of death
searching their hearts,
the broken bond
man breaks the heart
of a wanting son
an angel lifts the son
out of the valley
into the border lands
where a boy
becomes a man
son washed upon the shore
mother gives him a wing
points him upon his unpaved path

This poem not only tells the truth but, it also tell a story of a younger boy who's father had left him to the wolves.
