The Determined

Wandering as free as a bird in flight;
Yet, led by the call it knows it must heed.
Constantly cut apart in every fight;
Yet, presses on as though it cannot bleed.

Even in defeat, finds a victory;
Even in an end, finds a beginning;
Even in a death, maintains memory;
Even in virtue, battles its sinning.

Unfettered by obstacles that impede;
Unbroken by stones cast at its form;
Unstoppable; never forced to recede;
Impenetrable; fury like a storm.

Assailants break like waves against the rocks;
Defenders quake at the thunderous voice;
Mind like a key that opens many locks;
Heart so defiant, it makes its own choice.

Justin Douglas Blackford
