Fair Winds blow,
Raised on the southeastern soul
Of Planet Earth,
Full and rich,
Brimming with life,
Magnificent birds and bugs and
Sea life dancing upon the waves;
Breathe deeply, man,
The succor of Heaven on Earth,
And let your thoughts
Rain through the cosmos,
For dreams bring life
For all.

You are alone:
In your consideration
And the paths that you choose to follow,
Blame none for your failure,
And honor none for your achievement,
For in your success,
And your disappointment, as well,
Stand as a man,
Decisive,
Strong,
Honorable,
And noble,
And in your failure
Stand the same.

Let the warm winds of life
Cradle you at rest,
But as the sun sets,
And the warrior is called upon
To defend all that is fine,
Be that crusader
Known to all;
Fearless among his fellow men,
Righteous in every quarter;
A dreamer whose imaginings
Fill the sails of the Lord’s own fleet,
Where at last he will stand among his brothers,
All decisive,
All strong and honorable,
Bearing the nobility of the ages,
Saving man from man,
All in the name of what is right and good.

Frank I enjoyed the emotional majesty throughout this poem
"A Man Stands Alone."

Beautiful,

Whether it is a dream or not...it is a beautiful poem that captures what every mother wants for her sons...to stand strong and be honorable men...bearing the nobility of the ages upon their brows and in their souls...fighting and defending all that is noble and good.
The second stanza to me describes that honorable man...one who accepts full responsibility for each of his own actions.
I loved that you spoke of the fair wind and the warm winds cradling this man, for it helped me to remember that gentleness and love help create these qualities in men, and in the end... Man is never alone, especially in defending truth and right.
