I am not perfect. In fact I am flawed, and yet it may be that imperfection that makes me who I am. Some will say I live and die for a country. But that is a bunch of political BS. I am a sailor. I live to serve and I serve to live, not for any political cause but the greater cause of all humanity.
I lay down my life not for politics but for people. I live and if necessary die if necessary for all the children of the world in hope they may have more wisdom and greater opportunity than my generation. Yes I have a nation and a political affiliation, but in the end I am simply a sailor. I live to serve, and I serve to live. I know nothing else.
I am a sailor. I am more ancient than any nation or politics. I am the ancient mariner. I am a sailor, wild and free and yes perhaps by creators intention a little bit crazy. But no matter what I am always a sailor. I live to serve and I serve to live and deep down inside, that is my only purpose. In the great perspective I live and I die that the children of all humanity may have a greater hope for a more perfect and peaceful life.
I am a sailor. For all my weaknesses and failings I AM the last bastion against the darkness of despair. I sailed into hell and the devil cast me out for he could not endure my relentless hope. I sailed into the greatest darkness and it was dark no more for darkness cannot endure the madness nor the eternal hope of a sailor.
I sacrifice myself not for today but for the great future of humanity. It does not matter from which country I come for I am a sailor. I AM HUMANITY with all it imperfections and its hopes. I am the ancient mariner, the eternal guardian. For I live to serve and I serve to live, no matter the sacrifice to myself. But in the end, in the greater days, it is I who will sail you into the future of eternal hope. I am a sailor. I am the eternal guardian. I am the angels of lore.
